More than 70,000 New Yorkers are injured in traffic each year. New York City cannot achieve Vision Zero -- Mayor Bill de Blasio's plan to prevent all deaths and injuries caused by traffic by 2024 -- without lowering the speed limit.

Right now, New York State Legislators are debating a bill that could prevent thousands of devastating injuries and save countless lives by giving the City of New York control over local speed limits. This is the moment to take action and change New York City’s speed limit. Enter your information below to demand safer streets.
