’20 is Plenty’ Traffic Signs Posted on Stanton Street by Right of Way Guerrilla Safety Group
At first sight, it’s fairly easy to mistake these new speed limit signs on Stanton Street for being legit. They aren’t. In fact, the fakeout traffic signage, forged by Road Traffic Signs over the weekend, was zip-tied to light poles outside the Lower East Side Preparatory High School by activists from Right of Way, a guerrilla traffic safety group. Each one carries the slogan “20 is plenty,” printed in the familiar style motorists will likely recognize.
Stanton Street on the Lower East Side is not alone in its call for a 20mph cap. As part of this street campaign, similar signage was similarly placed in ten communities across four Boroughs to “demonstrate the ease of creating neighborhood slow zones.”
