Letter: Speed limit too high

3 Comments | Leave a Comment


I read the BYH snipe aimed at Ayden-Grifton High School student drivers with utter dismay.

The problem in front of AGHS and the other major intersections along that stretch of N.C. 11 is not high school drivers. It is the 60 mph speed limit that we all know is a defacto 70 mph limit. Raising the speed limit to 60 mph on the stretch of N.C. 11 in Pitt County between Grifton and Winterville was a political decision made to appease business leaders pushing for economic development with no regard to public safety. Consider the congestion along the road from the vast numbers of commuters who use the road, the log trucks from Weyerhaeuser, numerous residential driveways, Minges Bottling trucks and the two intersections in Ayden.

Having a 60 mph speed limit in front of AGHS is just the icing on a cake that was baked from a recipe for repeated tragedies. I challenge our elected leaders to act on this issue. They should show the students at AGHS that the lives and safety of those who live in southern Pitt County are more important than economic development.

Nothing about that road looks

Nothing about that road looks unsafe for 60. There should probably be some traffic control on that road when school is dismissed.

That area is still recognized as a school zone........

during a significant period of time during the school day during prime traffic times in the morning and afternoon, correct? Sounds like the issue is enforcement of the current speed limits would do more good than lowering the speed limit permanently
