Speed Limit Should Be Raised On Back Roads



I think that the speed limits on all of the back roads in Payson should be raised. I think that the limit is way too slow on most of the streets.

Practically no one follows them anyway, because they think it is way too slow, too.

On a lot of the roads, the limit is around 15 mph, but I believe it is perfectly safe to go almost twice that.

Also, because the limit is so low, there is the occasional person who actually follows the speed, so you are stuck behind a really slow person and we all know what that is like. If we raise the limit, it would also result in fewer speeding tickets, which is good.
