City leaders propose lowering speed limits in Seattle

SEATTLE -- Seattle leaders proposed lowering speed limits in the city Tuesday.

The plan, announced by council members Tim Burgess and Mike O'Brien, would lower speed limits on residential streets from 25 to 20 mph. On city center streets the limit would be lowered from 30 to 25 mph.

Burgess said this is part of the city's Vision Zero initiative aimed at ending traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030.

The proposal still needs Seattle City Council approval.
