How does the City determine speed limits?
Engineers establish speed limits using:
• The road’s 85th percentile of speed (85 percent of drivers travel at this speed or lower).
• Roadway characteristics.
• Accident records.

Studies have shown that simply reducing the speed limit does not slow down traffic, since drivers behavior is based on the characteristics of the roadway.
