HB18-1191 - Local Government Alter Speed Limits

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning a local authority's ability to alter speed limits within the local authority's jurisdiction.

Current law requires county and municipal authorities (authorities) to conduct a traffic investigation or survey before increasing or decreasing the speed limits within the authority's jurisdiction. The bill allows the authority to also consider the following factors:

 

  • Road characteristics;
  • Current and future development;
  • Environmental factors;
  • Parking practices;
  • Pedestrian and bicycle activity in the vicinity; and
  • Crash statistics from the most recent year.
