Kyla Lee on The Star Vancouver regarding the 30 km/h Speed Limit

Kyla Lee on The Star Vancouver regarding the 30 km/h Speed Limit

In Vancouver, there were 565 motor vehicle collisions involving pedestrians in 2017, according to the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC).

Vancouver City Councillor Pete Fry is proposing a pilot project to test the effectiveness of a 30 km/h speed limit on local roads — those without a centre line. The current speed limit for such roads is 50 km/h.

But enforcing a 30 km/h speed limit on all of Vancouver’s narrow residential roads will prove difficult, making it a bad law, said a lawyer who specializes in driving law.

“You’re going to create a speed limit that everybody will quickly learn will not be enforced,” said Kyla Lee with Acumen Law.

“High-risk drivers exist everywhere, and those people are going to barrel down those roads at 70 km/h, regardless of what the speed limit is.”
