Speed Limit Around Bookin Cut by 10mph

Traffic strips were deployed for a number of days to measure speed and volume of traffic before the decision was made.

Safer speeds at Booksin Elementary

Booksin and 2 other San Jose Schools had their speed limit reduced on paper today — down from 25 to 15 MPH.

People seem excited and happy about city council passing this into law today. Now they question the jay walking and the u turns and the general mayhem of driving that can be seen at drop off and pick up. As a parent, it is tricky to find the crosswalk that is a block away when we are barely on time to begin with. I vote for making the whole road all the way around all schools into a crosswalk. Pedestrians have the right of way, right?
