In one of his last initiatives as mayor, Keith Killion saw an zones pass introduction last Wednesday.
The outgoing mayor, who chairs the Citizens Safety Committee, said he finds it baffling a select few streets in the densely-packed village allow for speeds upwards of 35 or 40 mph. North Monroe and Lincoln avenues are two of the notable thoroughfares that allow such limits.
In many cases, Killion said, drivers already exceed the speed limit by 10 mph or more, a dangerous situation given how many residents walk Ridgewood's streets and drive its roads.
The ordinance is likely to pass during the public meeting in June.
