New Law Would Lower Speed Limit in GG Park to 15 m.p.h.

Assemblyman Phil Ting submitted legislation in Sacramento

on Feb. 15 that would change the speed limit on Golden Gate Park

roads from 25 miles-per-hour (m.p.h.) to 15 m.p.h. Only

Crossover Drive and Park Presidio Bypass would be exempt.

Ting claims the legislation is needed because some commuters

use the park, instead of city streets, to get to their destinations,

and because a slower speed would be safer for pedestrians

and bicyclists.

The legislation is tentatively scheduled for a committee hearing

on March 18.

For more information, go to the Assembly’s

website at leginfo.legislature.ca.gov and

search for AB-756.
