Slower Streets is being rolled out in Ainslie, Aranda, Braddon, Crace, Downer, Farrer, Garran, O’Connor, Watson, Weston and Yarralumla as part of the COVID-19 response. This has to be good for cycling. What is Slow Streets about?
The introduction of intelligent street signs has slowed cars travelling 12 km/h faster than the speed limit on local streets and past schools. The signs are a reminder of the rules of the road and not speed cameras. The idea: instead of speed enforcement we learn through a social cue.
