MDOT has announced that the speed limit on Westnedge/Park in Kalamazoo will be raised to 35 or 40 on different stretches of the road. Score one for government!
'Speeding' hot spot: Limit to be set at 40 mph on Kalamazoo's Westnedge Hill
Plans for speed-limit changes in Kalamazoo to be discussed tonight
Of course, this victory only comes over the opposition of another unit of government. Kalamazoo City opposed the change, due to the fact that Westnedge Hill is the number one speed tr-er, vital public safety concerns.
Next job for MDOT--raise the speed limit on Stadium Drive back to 50 mph and shut down that speed trap as well.
