The Twenty is Plenty movement started in the UK, where 20 MPH speed limits have been imposed by dozens of local authorities.
The bill, introduced by Councilman David Greenfield, is aimed at reducing serous pedestrian injuries and traffic fatalities. Last year, 148 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents and crashes.“We are working to fine-tune this life-saving legislation that will slow down automobiles on narrow residential streets. I am hopeful that we can get consensus on this important legislation, which will literally save lives once it is enacted here in New York City,” he said in response to the speaker’s comments.
“Slightly below above-average”

This only addresses half the problem. Whatcha gonna do about idiotic pedestrians? It is illegal in New York to walk under a moving vehicle, unless, of course, you're in a cross-walk. Then you can walk under any vehicle you like, moving or not.

Never mind that Slogan' about what you do behind 'Closed door' is nobody's business... clearly it is, and would be even more if our 'so call' American Intellectuals had any real sense and do their jobs in a more professional way or fashion, and try to keep "KIDS' out of those Guys ''hands'... but unfortunately they failed beyond any type of logic when it comes morality.
I don't ever want to hear that garbage about that you are good parents... Those 'KIDS" aren't stupid, while growing up in your inner circle, they will always 'Wonder' as to what do you GUYS do behind those 'Closed doors' when the lights goes out... and it would 'Obvious' to them that somebody's playing with S**t or someone's A** more than likely... So those so call 'Politically Correct' people need to wake up, and grow a "Pair" and say enough is enough... and this S**T is no longer acceptable... and that goes for all of you conservatives too.
So in closing, the one Person that is right 120% is that 'Russia' PRESIDENT.... Leave the F*****G "KIDS" Alone... Don't push that S***T on them.
They're Innocent, and it's no good for their 'Moral' and they don't need to be expose to your Nasty ways at such early 'Age'...
America stop the 'Madness'

It doesn't matter because traffic in New York rarely gets above 20, unless you are on an expressway.
