The news story “Safety on the streets”  details New York City’s plans to develop safety standards and lower the speed limit. 

To really make the streets safer and save lives, some visionary politician should introduce legislation to ban the sale of cars that can reach 120 to 200 mph. I think 80 mph on the top end should be sufficient.
