Aspen reviews 14 mph speed limit to alert drivers

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Aspen city council members are considering a 14 mph speed limit in a residential area of the Colorado mountain town in attempt to get the attention of drivers and have them slow down.

Residents say few drivers are obeying the current 25 mph speed limit and are ignoring other efforts to protect people.

The Aspen Times reports Mayor Mick Ireland suggested an 18 mph limit because the number is out of the ordinary for a speed limit. After further discussion, council members decided to drop the proposed limit down to 14 mph.

Ban the cars and make them walk. It will save lives.

This may potentially be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard! My car idles at 14 mph! After further discussion 18 wasn't stupid enough so they chose 14!

These idiots share the same delusional non-thinking the anti-gunners do. Instead of attacking the problem in a way that will work, they take what looks superficially like the easy way out. They screw everyone over - even the people who obeyed the law and drove the 25 mph limit. They're being punished along with the one or two who allegedly sped. How about having a cop located where speed is a problem? In other words, punish the guilty, and not the innocent.
