Aspen reviews 14 mph speed limit to alert drivers
Aspen city council members are considering a 14 mile per hour speed limit in a residential area in attempt to get the attention of drivers and get them to slow down.
Residents say few drivers are obeying the current 25 miles per hour speed limit and are ignoring other efforts to protect residents.
According to the Aspen Times (http://tinyurl.com/9wlktaz ), Mayor Mick Ireland suggested an 18 mph limit because the number is out of the ordinary for a speed limit and will attract a driver's attention. After further discussion, council members decided to drop the proposed limit down to 14 mph.
