Exploring Reductions in Downtown Speed Limits
We heard you Lethbridge! In June we asked how you felt about lowering the speed limit in the downtown as a tool to create road safety and a comfortable place for walking and cycling. Boy, did you respond. We had one of the highest survey participation rates we’ve ever seen with 2204 people giving feedback.
In the end 77% of residents felt the speed should stay the same so we will not be moving forward with this initiative at this time. We will continue to explore other ways to improve the vibrancy of downtown and increase road safety for all visitors everyone.
