Even with them lowering the speed limit, do they think a lot of people will slow down? They might at first....but it will just go back to the way it was....eventually.


Wow. Just..................wow.

FYI it went from 45mph down to 35mph

I hope they enforce the speed limit for cars as well.

WTF!?

Again!?

It use to be 55, then 45, now 35!?

This is like gun enforcement laws, its not people going 45 that are the problem, its the people goint 70+, dont lower the limit even more, just enforce the current laws.

Man, might as well take a moped up 211 now.

Exactly .... I know I still ride that road now and again but I sure as hell don't invite the board with me when I do.

Common sense people ..... if your shit aint legal or you have the self control of a 5 year old with ADHD then don't ride it. You don't need to do 70+ just to have fun on a road like 211. If you know what you're doing 35-45 is plenty to carve that road up.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.
