Hurray for higher speed limits!

Midkiff between Kimberlea all the way south is now 40 MPH, instead of 35. Everyone still goes 50 down that road anyway though...

Wadley, between Midkiff and Midland Drive, is now 45 MPH, instead of 40. Now if they can only make the school zone 30 - I never see anyone from that school walking home...

And they need to fix the timing on the lights on Midland Drive. They are timed at night time to where you have to stop for each one, and wait through the turning light even if no one is around. I know most of them don't have those big sensors on the lightposts, but I thought they had ground sensors. I mean come on... they used to work jut fine... Why mess with 'em?

I'm all for higher speed limits....except in front of HEB and the post office! That section is a train wreck waiting to happen.

I have noticed one thing... more people are acually obeyin the speed limit now. Most people used to go around 45 when it was 35, but now that it's 40 it seems more people are actually driving 40. It's crazy! Midlanders doin the speed limit...

Wadley should be 45 mph from big spring st. all the way to the loop (which partially is now). and bert is right, no one from Trinity School walks home... that school zone is a joke.
