Due to all of the circumstances mentioned, we are asking TXDOT: how can you defend the current speed of 60mph? What threshold must the East Portion of Dripping Springs meet for TXDOT to lower the speed limit to reduce fatality and injury rate? How can TXDOT say that a 60mph is in the best interest of our communities safety and well being?
We are asking TXDOT to either lower the speed limit to a more acceptable speed like we encounter in Downtown Dripping Springs, or to defend their current position on the speed limit, in depth, by answering the following questions with specific data that supports their decision.
Should you choose not to reduce the speed limit to an acceptable speed, please detail for us how this choice is, without a doubt, the safest choice for our residents.
We are requesting a formal answer on this matter that can be delivered publicly by August 1, 2019. We are hoping that we can work together to make our community safer.
