Claremont To Get First ‘Slow Zone’ In New York, The Bronx Times

Claremont in the Bronx is to become New York’s first traffic ‘slow zone’ to combat road deaths in the area, which are the highest of any neighborhood in the city, reports the Bronx Times.

The Department of Transportation have announced they are close to finishing a system of road bumps and 20 mph speed limits that will extend from 174 Street on the North, Boone Avenue on the East, part of Westchester Avenue to 167 Street on the South, and Southern Boulevard on the West.

The inititive is based on a similar system in London, where slow zones successfully reduced casualities by as much as 40 percent.
