BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Cars on neighborhoods in the city of Boulder will be going a little slower starting this summer. That’s because the city council approved a measure to lower the residential speed limit from 25 to 20.

Crews will replace a total of 465 speed limit signs throughout the city over the summer. The new law will go into effect on June 18.

  1. It is incredible that Boulder can get away with advertising “Vision Zero” on speed limit signs — or can it? There are national standards and I can’t believe that these signs meet them.

  2. Paul Frawner says:

    Why not just walk. Glad they have all that money to waste.

    1. Did you mean: “Why not just walk?”? That’s an example of a question. Most people only walk ~3 mph, less than a sixth of the new municipal speed limit in Boulder, so even if one’s trip is only along residential streets, it will be much faster than walking.
