Slower traffic keep right, y’all.
It was this for our whole state until some jerk contested a $70 ticket for going way too fast and ended up in the Montana Supreme Court.
The sign wasnt big enough for 41.843 KPH.
I-10 and I-20 in west Texas are also 85 mph.
Just between us, it’s about 125 when nobody’s looking. Off the record.
In Sacramento CA USA it's 17 MPH in an older, leafy neighborhood near downtown where I (eye) and J Streets cross numbered streets, and there are several roundabouts.
Well?!?!? Obviously 15 MPH would be a drag, yet 20 MPH wouldn't be either reasonable OR prudent.
Wasn't there a western state back in the day that had no daytime speed limit on interstates as long as you were not within sight of another vehicle ?
Maybe it was done away with during the "55 MPH" era ?
I got pulled over for going 51 in a 50. I guess the guy didn't appreciate my want for him to write that ticket and my eagerness to take a picture of it. Too bad. Got a warning.
Are you certain ?
I probably shouldn't even ask ...
Yes there is a 19mph on Quito Rd and also this one, they have been there for at least 40 years.
Oh, my ... yes, it wasn't just 19 mph. Quito was my first thought in reading this thread's title. There was another stretch where it was 17 mph.
I could walk to Mt. Charley's from my home. CA, the land of fruits and nuts. And Lamborghinis strutting down the Los Gatos strip from the silicon valley nouveau rich. How did you mange the transition back to the heartland!
Some streets in downtown Albuquerque and the Nob Hill area are posted at 18 mph. I try to keep it at a safe 19.
That sums up what I was thinking reading this thread: use km/h once and for all
I did a consulting gig in a small town where the hospital was implementing an electronic medical record. The standard, posted speed limit was 29 MPH, for whatever reason.
I'd like to hear a first-person account of why such speed limits are used.
Well since I'm not a party popper like some, I'm gonna guess they did it to be different and fun. I'm sure that it'll be because of the P word next lol
it's like that all over upstate New York. 25 or 30 mph in the villages; 55 mph as soon as you get outside. Sometimes the village part is only a half a mile long.
But it seems legit: outside the villages is just empty farmland. When you're in the settled little towns there's actually a reason you should be going slow.
Well.....I didn't expect to see any corroborating responses
I'm not recalling that 22mph one but that's just my neurons failing me.
Can't believe I got the "Quito" road part accurate.
Wow....walking distance from Mt Charley's!
It was a good gig and we had a good following....I have studio recordings of many of our songs...we were an originals band.
House band there from '76 - '79. (Crow's nest in Santa Cruz too)
In those days we had club gigs Tues - Sunday and casuals during the day on the weekends.
That's certainly looooong over.
Ha....'the land of fruits and nuts'.
Well....I retired Dec 27, 2010. (I wrote a song called "Retired' the following day....I recall being quite elated about it )
My wife retired in 2018 and being on fixed income we could no longer afford California.
That was a reality we had to face.
My old fried (bass player/band mate/recording cohort) was born and raised here (La Crosse) so we had a connection.
We've been here 2 years on Oct. 6th....we're both very happy with the decision for several reasons.
The 'transition' itself was hell but that's to be expected with an out-of-state relocation.
That's for responding and good to know others have history in that turf.
No hijack intended....back to topic.
Have a great day.
