In response to David Lauderdale’s continuing rant about “slowpoke” drivers:
The general posted speed limit on U.S. 278 reads 45 mph.
There are many right- and left-hand intersections to neighborhoods, gated plantations and shopping plazas. All of them aren’t boldly marked because local government enforces laws to present a natural ambiance, meaning it’s really hard to find what you’re looking for.
So, why would anyone think that it’s natural and OK to drive 70 mph in a zone labeled 45 mph? Accept what you have designed and created. The road ends at the ocean in less than 10 miles. What’s your rush?
Never miss a local story.
You made this place the way it is, don’t complain when it works as intended.
Slow down! The beach will still be there!
