HAND OUT FLYERS OPPOSING THE PROPOSED SPEED LIMIT INCREASE ON OCEAN PARKWAY

Speed Limit Increase Protest
Today, Sunday, April 9th, 2:00 p.m.
Pedestrians are 74 percent more likely to be killed if they’re struck by vehicles traveling at 30 MPH than 25 MPH*, so why does your state senator want to increase the speed limit on Ocean Parkway?
Ask him.
Join local residents as they oppose State Senator Simcha Felder's proposed legislation to increase the speed limit on Ocean Parkway from 25 mph to 30 mph. Distribute flyers to constituents in his district, State Senate District 17. The organizers will provide all of the material.

Meet today--Sunday, April 9th--at 2:00 p.m., at 424 E. 9th Street (map), right off Cortelyou Road. Participants will split into separate groups to distribute flyers.
