GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Greenburgh Town Board approved a new law at the last Town Board meeting reducing the speed limit of motorists driving on East Hartsdale Avenue to 25 miles per hour.

The goal is to help ensure the safety of motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. This proposal was requested by residents of the community and the need for the reduced speed was confirmed from data obtained from the police department reports.

East Hartsdale Avenue is the most densely populated area in town, with many residents, commuters, patrons and merchants driving and walking along the street creating a risk of vehicular/pedestrian conflict. The entire length of East Hartsdale Avenue will have the reduced speed limit. Most other streets in town have a 30 MPH speed restriction.
