City orders drivers to slow down on these two Queens streets (Queens Daily Eagle)
Drivers cruising down two busy Queens roadways will have to slow down. Speed cameras will be reprogrammed.
The DOT is reducing the speed limit on Rockaway Boulevard between 150th Avenue to 3rd Street from 40 mph to 35 mph. On Northern Boulevard between 114th Street to Glenwood Street, the speed limit will go from 30 mph to 25 mph
They are among nine streets across the city where the speed limit is dropping by 5 miles per hour. The changes are part of the Vision Zero initiative to reduce roadway deaths.
“Speeding is a leading cause of traffic fatalities.” said DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg. “We are reducing speed limits on some of the city’s most crash-prone corridors, and growing our speed camera program at a rate that will make our system the largest in the world.”
Speed cameras along the streets will be reprogrammed so that warnings can be issued for violators during the first 60 days of the new speed limits.
