Road Safety: what will happen to the project to raise the maximum speed in the city to 60 kilometers per hour?

He project raising the maximum speed in urban areas to 60 kilometers per hour has generated an intense debate. In 2018, the maximum speed of circulation in urban areas of Chile was reduced from 60 to 50 km/h, with the aim of improving the quality of life of citizens and guaranteeing greater road safety. However, a group of opposition senators led by Iván Moreira has presented a bill to reverse this measure and return to the previous maximum speed.

This project has generated criticism from road safety experts. It is argued that increasing the speed maximum in urban areas goes against international trends, which seeks to reduce speed to reduce accidents and injuries caused by traffic accidents. In addition, it is highlighted that the reduction in speed to 50 km/h in 2018 was an important step to reduce deaths due to speeding.
