LA City Council Supports Legislation to give Cities More Flexibility in Setting Speed Limits
via LADOT Weekly Brief 7/7/21 -
LA City Council adopted a resolution to support CA State AB 43, which would grant municipalities greater control in setting speed ilmits on city streets. Speed is the primary factor in determining the severity of a crash, and this bill provides cities an opportunity to save hundreds of lives.
Introduced by Assemblymember Laura Friedman (D-Glendale) and accompanying legislators, AB 43 was passed by the California Assembly in May 2021 and is currently in committee prior to receiving a vote by the California Senate.
Send us your LA County bike-related updates and events, and we'll include them in the next newsletter (two weeks form now).
