Lower speed limit signs posted along Hosea L. Williams Drive NE

Lower speed limit signs

 

ATLANTA — Signs reflecting a lowered speed limit along Hosea L. Williams Drive NE were posted Friday, Oct. 2, following the unanimous adoption of legislation earlier this year by the Atlanta City Council approving the change (Legislative Reference No. 20-O-1325).

The legislation, introduced by District 5 Council member Natalyn Archibong, reduced the traffic speed to 25 miles per hour with the goal of greatly increasing safety to motorists and pedestrians.

“This street is named after a civil rights icon Hosea L. Williams and is an important corridor in our city. For this reason, I am pleased to have this street be one of the first streets in District 5 to adopt a speed limit in keeping with our Vision Zero strategic transportation plan,” Archibong said.

In mid-April, Atlanta became the latest city to adopt a Vision Zero plan aimed at eliminating traffic fatalities and injuries. The plan lowers the default speed limit on local roads to 25 miles per hour and focuses on implementing certain design standards to improve public safety and health.
