Proposed Safety Improvements in D.C.: Fewer Right Turns on Red Lights and 20 MPH Speed Limits
"After at least 31 people were killed on DC roads this year, Mayor Muriel Bowser and her administration announced [this week] a slew of steps to try to halt the carnage," according to an article by David Alpert.
The most exiciting proposal will probably be the idea to ban right turns on some 100 intersections in the District. Another headline could be devoted to the potential of adding "neighborhood slow zones," where speed limits would be set at 20 miles per hour.
A previous report from another source claimed that right turns on red would be banned throughout the city, but Alpert here revises that claim. More details on the proposed safety proposals and additional analysis by Greater Greater Washington staff are included in the article.
