Last year, members of the Columbia City Council agreed to pay $10,000 to find out if speed-limit signs actually affect how fast people drive.
Sixth Ward Councilwoman Barbara Hoppe said several people complained to her that drivers were speeding too fast through their neighborhoods, so she brought the concern to the council's attention.
The council decided to research whether changing speed-limit signs from 30 mph to 25 mph would make a difference in the Shepard Boulevard and Rothwell Heights neighborhoods. The study has not yet been finished.
The council's plan is to eventually let individual neighborhoods decide if the speed limit should be changed.
What is the speed limit in your neighborhood and do you think it should be lowered?
