Neighborhood Speeding Causes Many Complaints
One of the top complaints received by city officials is that people are speeding on residential roads. Many motorists exceed the 25 mph residential speed limit. That includes all types of drivers – commuters, neighborhood residents, and young drivers. People who live in the neighborhood may exceed the speed limit because they know the roads well and find them comfortable and familiar. They also may use known shortcuts through the neighborhood, bringing them past other residents who notice their speed. While the issue of neighborhood speeding is a common problem, it does not have one easy solution. Below we will look at some ways to address speeding in residential areas.
