Highway 26 has two lanes each direction with a median in between (in most places)and wide shoulders, nearby Richey road has two lanes of opposing traffic with zero shoulder and many driveways, yet is posted at the same speed (55) as Highway 26. Where's the logic?
Whether because of the signage or ignorance of danger many drive these rural roads as if they were highways.
When a motorist maintains a speed of 55 on the highway is passed by everyone including triple trailers and trucks with flashing lights advertising "oversize loads" it's clear that we ACCEPT excessive speed and the carnage it brings.
