City unveils new 25 mph signs

New 25 mph speed limit signs are going up around the five boroughs.



The citywide speed limit goes into effect on Friday, dropping down from 30 mph.



Mayor Bill de Blasio signed the lowered limit into law last month. The Department of Transportation says the new law is designed to make the city safer for pedestrians, drivers and cyclists.



The new speed limit is part of the city's Vision Zero initiative to eliminate all traffic-related fatalities. To promote the new law, the DOT is pushing a public outreach campaign.
