Making sense of the pace restrict – BikePortland


Welcome to the Remark of the Week, the place we spotlight good feedback with a view to encourage extra of them. You’ll be able to assist us select our subsequent one by replying with “remark of the week” to any remark you assume deserves recognition.

Comment of the Week

In response to our article final week on the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s new authority to set pace limits throughout the metropolis of Portland, readers commented with one other robust spherical of our knowledgeable engineering vs. enforcement vs. speed-setting debate.

However relatively than limiting ourselves to an ongoing summary dialogue about how different individuals are going to react, gosh, you, pricey BikePortland reader, can set an instance. Simply observe the pace restrict. Our numbers are higher than you would possibly assume. As Jonathan famous in a current subscriber publication, our contents reaches a whole bunch of hundreds of individuals a month. If everybody who reads this dedicated to driving the pace restrict, we may save lives. Heck, perhaps we may slower speeds to turn into a pattern.

An nameless commenter did a pleasant job making that time, whereas additionally summarizing their place on the pace restrict debate usually, on this information-filled Remark of the Week:

Pace Limits assist some drivers make knowledgeable decisions. After I see a 20 is loads signal, I decelerate to twenty, even when I’m driving my bicycle. Indicators work. They aren’t 100% complied with however that’s okay. If the particular person in entrance of you is driving the pace restrict and also you’re approaching their rear at 10+ over, you’ll quickly be slowing all the way down to the pace restrict too.

Enforcement can be essential. Individuals who pace have to be cited and fined, your revenue degree might deserve a break, however you get sufficient factors and your privilege to drive will get revoked. The pace restrict ought to be photograph enforced, not PPB enforced till they earn again group belief.

Different cities in different states set their very own pace limits with approval by their metropolis council. ODOT setting pace limits is sophomoric, we don’t want a state company telling us easy methods to run our metropolis, not to mention our streets. The earlier all orphan highways are out of ODOT’s management, the higher. ODOT cares extra about effectivity and comfort relatively than security and the lives of individuals strolling and driving bicycles.
