The speed limits on Atlanta’s roads could be dropping in the future if the city council gets its way.
At its meeting Sept. 16 at City Hall downtown, the council approved legislation requesting the Atlanta Department of City Planning conduct a study to evaluate reducing speed limits within the city.
The mission for the proposal, introduced by Post 3 at-large Councilman Andre Dickens, is to improve safety and quality of life for all residents, including individuals who drive, bike, walk, ride public transit and use wheelchairs or other wheeled devices such as electric scooters (Legislative Reference No. 19-R-4564).
An email sent to Dickens seeking comment on the legislation was not returned.
