It does not seem as though many Miamians know this, but the speed limit on residential streets is actually 30 miles per hour. A 5 mile per hour reduction sure does not feel like much, but a Miami Herald article from May purports that it “gives pedestrians a much better chance of survival if they’re hit by a car, according to studies from the AAA Foundation. Slowing down also can help reduce the number of accidents.”
The new speed limits in the Gables are now in effect; however, the new 25 mile per hour speed limit signage is still not in place. From what I have heard, once those signs go up the police department will strictly enforce the new maximum speed in residential neighborhoods. Whether you live in Coral Gables or just pass through, it is time to slow down just a little bit in order to make everyone safer. With fewer accidents, traffic might get better too!
