Russell Berg started this petition to Lincoln County Chair Bob Lee and

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, HEREBY PETITION the Lincoln County and Oneida County Boards to reduce the speed limit of County Road L in their respective jurisdictions from 55MPH to 45MPH in the interest of public safety for residents, motorists, pedestrians, and visitors to the area.

WE STATE OR BELIEVE:

1.     There are several successful businesses along and accessed via County Road L in both counties that have increased the amount of traffic on the highway. The businesses supporting this request include:  Billy Bobs, Tilted Loon, The Windmill, Hobs Sports Center, Green Hydrangea Re-creations, and Kracker Barrel.

2.     There is a wide variety of vehicles operating on the roadway, including: large heavy trucks, vehicles towing trailers, cars/pickups, motorcycles, bicycles, ATVs/UTVs.

3.     The roadway has several business/residential driveways and side roads along its length, including those near curves on the roadway. People cross the roadway when walking to businesses, accessing the bike trail, getting mail, etc…

4.     Reducing the speed limit will decrease the overall braking distance of a vehicle if sudden safe stopping is required.
