    Alderpeople on the City Council’s pedestrian and traffic safety committee held a hearing Wednesday on the possibility of lowering the default speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph citywide with the goal of reducing traffic crashes, serious injuries and deaths.  

    It’s a measure that advocates say has been a success in other cities and stems from the recognition that even slight decreases in speed can drastically improve someone’s chances of survival in a traffic accident.
