NYC Speed Limit: Do you know it?

Posted in Death Wish, Safety, Video Games, Videos by MrAngry | November 30th, 2010 | 2 Responses |

I’ve lived in New York my whole life and grew-up driving on its potholed riddled streets. I’ve ridden bicycles here, commuted to work via motorcycle on these streets and have even been hit by 3 cars – all of which were cabs. For me driving in New York City is like playing Grand Theft Auto, it’s always fun, yet there is something inherently dangerous about doing it. One thing that I honestly never knew though was what the actual speed limit inside the city was. You see there are no speed limit signs posted anywhere, nor are there generally any rules. If you drive in NYC that means you’d better be in full offensive mode 100% of the time or you’ll get eaten alive. Cabs, ambulances, fire trucks, buses, police cars, commuters, hot dog vendors and cyclists all clog up New York City’s road ways at any given point in the day. Hell, we don’t even use blinkers here because all that does is tip off the guy behind us as to what our next move is going to be. I must say though, now that I know the speed limit is a mere 30 mph, I’ll do my best to keep my driving respectable. It won’t be easy, but in the interest of saving lives, what the hell… I’ll behave.
