Slow down! Sacramento schools adapting to new speed limits


CHANGE THAT BRIAN HICKEY IS
THERE TO EXPLAIN. BRIAN: THE NEW SCHOOL ZONE SPEED
LIMIT IS 15 MILES PER HO AND
IT IS FOR ALL SACRAMENTO
SCHOOLS. THE NATOMAS UNIFIED SCHOOL
DISTRICT STUDENTS WILL BE THE
FIRST AS THEY HEAD BACK TO
SCHOOL TODAY. AT SOME SCHOOLS, YOU WILL NOT
SEE THE NEW SIGNS POSTED JUST
YET AS THE PUBLIC WORKS
DEPARTMENT IS OUT THERE TRYING
TO SWAP OUT THE NEW SIGNS FOR
THE NEW SPEED LIMIT. IT WAS IN JUNE THAT THE
SACRAMENTO CITY COUNCIL APPROVED
THE SPEED REDUCTIONS AT 115
SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE AREA. THAT MEANS 225 STREETS AROUND
THOSE SCHOOLS WILL HAVE THE
SCHOOL ZONE SPEED LIMIT REDUCED
TO 15 MILES PER HOUR. THIS COMES AFTER SACRAMENTO WAS
NAMED THE WORST IN THE ENTIRE
STATE OF CALIFORNIA FOR TRAFFIC
FATALITIES WHERE THE VICTIM IS
UNDER 15 AND THE WORST OF
FOUR-SPEED RELATED FATALITIES.>>15 MILES PER HOUR IS SLOW,
BUT I WOULD RATHER BE SLOW AND
SAFE THEN FAST AND DANGEROUS. JUST BEING MINDFUL THA THERE
ARE A STUDENT SURROUNDS,
CHILDREN, ADLTS THAT MAY ARE
NOT LOOKING OR KIDS THAT ARE
DARTING INTO TRAFFIC YOU BRIAN:
JUST A HEADS UP THAT STUDENTS ARE OUT CHANGING THE SIGNS. THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT HAS
STARTED IN THE SOUTH AREA, SO
THE SOUTH SACRAMENTO SCHOOLS
WILL SEE THOSE BE LIMIT SIGNS
AND THEY WILL WORK THEIR WAY UP
TO NATOMAS, WHERE AT THIS SCHOOL, THE SPEED LIMIT IS STILL
POSTED A 25. YOU MAY AS WELL ADOPT THE NEW
SPEED LIMIT NOW BECAUSE O

  1. This puts it all on the drivers. Stupid adults and kids who do not pay attention to thier surroundings are just as much to blame.

  2. This has nothing to do with public safety. It has everything to do with a greedy city finding a way to make even more money, In this town if you Eat, chit or scratch your face you can bet the city is trying to figure out away to make money on you.

  3. I’m not big on more rules and regulations but many people drive 5-10 over speed limit and text while driving, so this makes sense to me. Stupid people get stupid prizes. Thanks dumbasses😑
