Mayor Martin Walsh asked for our help in raising awareness of how the City is making streets safer for people of all ages who are walking, biking and driving. The City recently adopted a default speed limit of 25 mph, which went into effect January 9, 2016. The lower speed limit is part of the Mayor’s Vision Zero plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030.
