Letter to the Editor: Speeding on Highway 267 still an issue
December 11, 2008
As a resident of the KIngswood neighborhood for the past 15 years, I use Highway 28 through Kings Beach for shopping, mail pickup, and various other errands.
I was constantly frustrated when I was obeying the posted speed limit and other “hot dog drivers” passed me exceeding the limit by 20 mph or more. Now that the speed limit flashing indicators have been posted through the KIngs Beach corridor, I notice a positive response to drivers that seem to be in tune with obeying the posted limit.
This is a great incentive for keeping drivers aware of obeying the speed limits and hope that it continues to inhibit speeding through the downtown area.
The speed limit flashers might be something that could be considered for Highway 267 at the intersection of Highway 28 through the 35 and 45 mph speed limit areas. There aren’t a lot of drivers that seem to adhere to those limits. Possibly the limit flashers would deter speeding in that stretch of 267 until they get beyond the residential neighborhoods that border the highway.
