Surrey testing lowered speed limits in six residential neighbourhoods

The City of Surrey is launching a pilot project aiming at slowing traffic on residential streets. The plan will see speed limits dropped to 30 km/h in three neighbourhoods, and to 40 km/h in three others.

City staff are looking to study how lower speeds affect driver behaviour, and will compare the effects of the two different speed limits. The study builds on research showing pedestrians struck by a driver at 30 km/h has a 90 per cent chance of survival, while a person struck at 50 km/h has just a 15 per cent chance of surviving, according to the city.

Signage has been installed warning drivers of the reduce speed limits and that they are entering a “slow streets area.” The lowered speed limits will be in place until December.
