Reduce the Speed Limit on A1A/Atlantic Avenue to 35 MPH in New Smyrna Beach Florida.
This petition had 202 supporters
Memorial Day weekend a woman was seriously injured by a hit and run driver on South Atlantic Avenue in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Failure to yield to pedestrians at a flashing light crossing and speed were the principal factors.
There are 8 speed limit changes from the bridge on the South Causway to the end of the Peninsula.
There are studies and reports that include that stretch as one of the dangerous areas fro pedestrian/vehicle collisions.
Drivers and pedestrians can be confused by these changes. Reaction time can be improved if the speed limit is reduced to a uniform 35 Miles Per Hour along A1A/South Atlantic Avenue.
Fox 35 interviewed Steve Ostermann a concerned area resident about this issue. Here is the link to the video:
