NEW YORK — The New York City Council has passed a bill lowering the maximum speed limit on most residential streets to 25 miles per hour.

The change is part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s effort to cut down on pedestrian deaths. It will go into effect on Nov. 7.

It will apply to all streets where a maximum speed is not posted. The current speed limit is 30 mph.

The initiative is part of de Blasio’s Vision Zero program that aims to eliminate traffic fatalities. The council vote came on Oct. 7th.

Officials say that overall, the number of people killed in city traffic accidents has increased by about 15 percent in recent years.
