"In August, Saanich Mayor Fred Haynes said he had enlisted 10 other capital region municipalities to take part, noting reduced speeds will reduce deaths and injuries, and help fight climate change by making side roads safer and encouraging more people to get out of their cars and walk or cycle.

Saanich Coun. Ned Taylor said he had wanted the speed limit dropped to 30 km/h, since it’s safer, but the rest of council preferred to stick with 40 km/h, the option “preferred by regional partners that we’re working with.”

Taylor said he’s pleased that council is moving forward on the issue. “This is an important issue and overall we’re making progress, and this is a good first step.”

Brownoff said dropping the default speed limit to 30 km/h would make it tougher to get participation from other municipalities.

“Our goal was to see how many municipalities we could get in the tent.”

Corey Burger of the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition said there is considerable evidence from other cities that a 30 km/h speed limit is the best option to reduce crashes, “and also to increase the comfort of people who are walking or hiking.”"
