In an effort to increase safety, speed limits on Portland’s residential streets are dropping to 20 miles per hour following a recent Portland City Council decision. The new speed limit will take effect citywide by April 1, 2018.
The 20 mph speed limit is part of Portland’s Vision Zero work to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries. A pedestrian hit by a driver at 25 mph is nearly twice as likely to die compared to someone hit at 20 mph.
PBOT is doubling the number of residential speed limit signs, installing approximately 2,000 across the city. Not every residential street will have a speed limit sign, but the 20 mph speed limit will be in effect on all residential streets.

Thank you for supporting safe streets by promoting the new speed limit and by driving 20 mph or less on our residential streets!
