20 is Plenty – Portland’s New Residential Speed Limit

The new Portland residential speed limit is in effect as of April 1st.  According to the Portland Bureau of Transportation, the 20 mph residential speed limit applies to “streets that do not have center line markings.” The “20 Is Plenty” campaign is part of the City’s Vision Zero initiative to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries.  You can find more specific information about the City of Portland traffic safety campaign on the Portland Bureau of Transportation website.  So, borrowing that famous line from Hill Street Blues and the late Steven Bochco, “Let’s be careful out there.”
