“The report adopted by the council noted that Shore Drive is a “multimodal corridor.””

Op-Ed in in Pilot today entitled Slow down on Shore Drive, read & comment at Pilotonline.com:

As long as vehicles use Shore Drive as a highway while throngs of people cross it to get to the beach, restaurants or bars; as long as cars fly past runners and cyclists on the way to the state park; as long as the scenic connection between Chic’s Beach and the Oceanfront continues to be a fully developed community bisected by a speedway, we will continue to see casualties.

City engineers argue that more speed reductions aren’t necessary, that expanding the 35-mph zone to west of the Lesner Bridge wouldn’t keep people safe. But it would give drivers – and pedestrians – more time to adjust to the fact that they’re on a four-lane road in the middle of a commercial and residential district, not on a highway in the country.
