SACRAMENTO – Governor Brown has signed into law a measure by Assemblymember Laura Friedman that addresses increased traffic-related injuries and fatalities and speeds across the state. AB 2363 creates a Task Force to review current methodology when setting speed limits, then to report and recommend to the legislature how fatalities as a result of vehicle related collisions can be reduced to zero.

           “Speed and safety have been priorities for me since I first became a resident of Glendale. Speed limits and traffic-related fatalities continue to rise, despite a Master Bicycle Plan and investment in engineering to slow the flow of traffic. This policy will begin to address injuries and fatalities as a result of increased speeds across the state.” –Assemblymember Friedman
