Councillors on the city's Transportation Committee have approved a new policy that will allow more streets in Ottawa to have 30 kilometer-an-hour speed limits.

Phil Landry, the city's director of Traffic Services, maintained that simply lowering the speed limits without looking at the physical configuration of the road will have minimal impact on driver behaviour.
