Motorists are supposed to follow posted speed limits or the default residential speed limit of 25 mph if not posted, but residential neighborhoods may experience speeding.
If you believe there is a speeding or safety issue in your neighborhood, you can request an investigation through our district offices.
The installation of traffic control devices and other street treatments can mitigate speeding on residential streets. Based on our assessment we will recommend a solution if warranted.
