Earlier this week at a Candidate Forum arranged by the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce, I spoke about my plan to reduce speed limits in Coral Gables. My point is simple. Traffic and congestion inconveniences all of us, but traffic should never endanger any of us.
Traffic reduction solutions can take time because they often require budget reallocations, but changing our city's speed limits is simple. This is an important safety measure that can be quickly implemented, and I intend to do so should you choose me for your next Mayor.
It’s a fact. Slower speed limits make it safer for pedestrians. Slower speed limits save lives. Slower speed limits are good for Coral Gables.
Don't you think that we can all slow down a little if it helps save a life?
