There’s no need for speed in Central Park — at least according to the activist bikers who put up unauthorized signs Tuesday night that shave 5 mph off the limit, according to the New York Daily News.
“20 is plenty,” said signs put up by Right of Way, a biking group advocating for pedestrian safety.
“We’re trying to slow people down. The existing laws don’t work,” said group co-founder Charles Komanoff.
A half-dozen activists’ covert op involved a metal ladder and plenty of zip ties to affix 10 faux speed limits to light poles.
The group held a moment of silence near W. 63rd St. to remember Jill Tarlov, 59. Seriously injured by a biker last week, the mother and wife died Sunday.
