By and large: Hoboken is a safe place to live – but there is always room for improvement.

Recently, the city lowered the citywide speed limit from 25 to 20: but I’m not sure if the problem was with the extra 5 miles per hour. While no one can argue that reducing the speed limit will lead to some improvements in safety, the bigger issue is with cars moving at a speed in excess of 25 miles per hour.

Likewise all of our bike lanes are currently direct flow. I’d like to see all bike lanes be made contra-flow so bicycles can ride with traffic in the car lanes and against traffic in their own lane: another dramatic improvement in safety.
