Atlanta City Council adopts Vision Zero, 25 mph default speed limit

On April 20 the Atlanta City Council voted unanimously to adopt the Vision Zero Strategic Transportation Plan proposed by Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. The policy is focused on eliminating traffic deaths and reducing crashes and serious injuries in the City of Atlanta.

From an April 21 press release

"The new Vision Zero legislation also includes a citywide ordinance lowering the default speed limit on local roads in Atlanta to 25 miles per hour for the purpose of improving public health and safety. Vehicular speed plays a critical role in the frequency and severity of crashes. Speed contributed to 52 percent of the 73 traffic fatalities recorded in 2019. Lowering the speed limit on Atlanta’s streets will improve safety of all travelers, including children, the elderly, minorities and low-income persons, pedestrians, cyclists, and those using scooters and other mobility devices."

— Mayor’s Office of Communications Tweet

Congratulations to our friends at the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition and PEDS, along with all their partner organizations! Read more about ABC’s Vision Zero Campaign and what they are doing to celebrate this victory.
