There will be a Alamo Heights Residential Speed Limit Reduction proposition on the November 3 ballot in Bexar County for voters in the city of Alamo Heights.[1]

This proposition sought to reduce the speed limit in residential zones to 25mph. The speed limit on these streets previously was 30mph and even though it was proposed to reduce it by just 5mph, supporters cited statistics that showed survival rates of pedestrians hit was greater in a 24mph accident. But those opposed stated that a reduction by that much was not going to help much and would rather see the money go towards educating people on how to stay safe while walking[2][3]
