SPEED LIMITS ON TOWNSHIP ROADS
There is a new Summary on HB 4423 Reported From Committee (2/16/2016) that has been introduced. It specifies 45 miles per hour on a county highway with a gravel or unimproved surface in a county with a population of one million or more. Upon the request of a municipality located within such a county, the county road commission, in conjunction with the state police and the requesting municipality, could decrease in speed limit on a county high with a gravel or unimproved surface to not lower than 35 miles per hour.
Residents can contact Representative Brad Jacobson, firstname.lastname@example.org, and Senator Dave Robertson, email@example.com to voice their opinions on this proposed legislation.
