25 mph in Boston
Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Transportation Commissioner Gina N. Fiandaca have worked with the City Council to lower the default speed limit in the City of Boston from 30 mph to 25 mph.
Reducing the default speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph helps make the city safer for people of all ages and abilities who are walking, driving, and bicycling on our streets. The new, lower speed limit is an early accomplishment for Vision Zero, Mayor Walsh’s commitment to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. Data show when you’re driving at or below 25 mph, you are less likely to be severely injured or killed in a traffic crash.
