NYC to introduce 'skeletal' speed monitors
NEW YORK (WABC) -- New York City is trying out a new, spooky way of warning drivers to slow down.
New electronic displays will show how fast a car is traveling. And if a vehicle is going faster than 30 miles an hour, the sign will flash a skeleton figure to show deadly risk.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg also wants to introduce a slower speed limit of just 20 miles an hour in some areas.
A pilot program will begin in the Bronx this summer.
