Leave the speed limit alone on Highway 54.

The City of Holts Summit, Missouri is proposing to reduce the current speed limit of 70 MPH to 60 MPH because a resident requested it. They claim the reason is to "calm traffic".

  • Sign this petition if you want the speed limit to remain at the current 70 MPH. It will be presented to the elected officials in charge.

We believe this speed limit reduction is unnecessary and would only inconvenience residents of Holts Summit. Highway 54 through Holts Summit is a typical highway with merge ramps and exit ramps and does not impose abnormal risk.

Furthermore, reducing the speed limit could create an environment for entrapment through speed traps and would give the city a negative appearance. We already have consistent speed traps and speed enforcement on Highway 54. This could be especially problematic driving downhill headed toward Jefferson City.

If the city wishes to improve safety, it should consider extending merge lanes and exit lanes rather than inconveniencing everyone, after they fix the quality of pavement on existing city roads.
