Speed Reduction

Thanks for your work regarding lowered speed limit in Cambridge. I live on Fresh Pond Parkway where the State Police do not enforce any traffic laws. The result is terrifying. Traffic is aggressive and moves at dangerously high speed. Despite a ban on trucks and buses, there is a lot of such heavy weight traffic in this residential,stretch generating vibration, noise and pollution. Your proposed speed reduction, with enforcement, would be a welcome first step in the right direction.

    Thank you for all your hard work and support for safe streets in Cambridge. It seems the all European cities, New York and Boston are all instituting the speed limit of 25 mph in cities for safety.

    As residents on Freshpond Pkwy, with my son crossing fresh pond on a daily basis to catch the bus and his friends biking on a regular basis back and forth from Tobin to Glacken after school, it’s hard to believe that Freshpond pkwy’s speed is still 30 mph and that cars drive much faster than that across the intersections and very close to the side walks.
    It will be great to get some attention to this problem and really appreciate your efforts to get some quick improvements.
