Speed limit should be lowered
Three pedestrian deaths and four vehicular deaths total in Rutland just this year — time to lower the speed limit citywide to 25 mph. Oh no, this is Rutland after all, with so many places that simply must be gotten to in a hurry. With a 25 mph speed limit people driving at excessively high speeds would be easier to spot and ticket. With a 25 mph speed limit it would be easier for stores to get people to stop and shop at and even to get people to walk to. But this would make Rutland more livable, and no one wants that.
