Speed Limit Reduction Tracking

The City of Raleigh is committed to providing safe neighborhood streets for all users and one major way to do that is by reducing the speed limit.  Slower vehicle speeds dramatically increase safety for pedestrians, cyclists, and even the drivers themselves.  Between 2015 and 2020, we have lowered the speed limit on 140 streets which measures out to just under 50 miles.  Moving forward, we want to continue to increase the number of streets and the miles of streets reduced until all of Raleigh’s neighborhood streets have been successfully reduced.

Yearly Tracking:

2015: 14 streets measuring approximately 4.75 miles

2016: 29 streets measuring approximately 10 miles

2017: 21 streets measuring approximately 7 miles

2018: 35 streets measuring approximately 12.75 miles

2019: 7 streets measuring 2.5 miles

2020: 34 streets measuring approximately 13 miles

2021: 48 streets measuring approximately 17.8 miles (so far)
