Neighborhood Slow Zones

What is a Slow Zone?
Neighborhood Slow Zones reduce the speed limit on residential streets from 30 mph to 20 mph to make neighborhoods safer for biking and walking.

The New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) installs speed bumps and signage in the Zone to lower the likelihood of crashes and reduce traffic noise in your community. Families in Neighborhood Slow Zones have greater peace of mind because they know drivers in their communities will stick to safer speeds.

How can I apply for a Slow Zone?
The Slow Zone application period is currently closed, but it’s never too early to start planning. Tell T.A. you want a Slow Zone and you’ll be the first to know when the application period re-opens in a few months!

Demand for Slow Zones has been so huge that T.A. is pushing to make it easier for more residents to win lower speeds on their streets. Sign our petition to call for safer speeds citywide!
