Letter: School zone speed limit is a money-grabbing ploy

What prompted the recent speed limit decrease to 15 mph in school districts? Statistics to support this unilateral oppressive decision? Please publish speeding violations and auto accident data.

Until the statistics are provided and prove to be compelling, this rash action must be reconsidered. This egregious punitive action is nothing more than a tax for all the drivers in the city of Buffalo. Why the penalty is enforced throughout the school day while students are in class has me dumbfounded.

Please rethink this money grab. The repercussions will be drastic as drivers avoid discretionary trips to the city for restaurant and small business purchases. In the future lets be smarter before implementing these bogus generating schemes disguised as citizen safety concerns.
