New Jersey lowered the speed limit on a road in Burlington City–some think it has been a disaster

The move to permanently lower the speed limit to 25 mph along a dangerous stretch of Route 130, near a number of schools, was meant to improve pedestrian safety. But there are fears the newly-enacted state law may be doing more harm than good.

City police claim the complications they anticipated before the law was signed in January are already being realized, just a couple months after the law was enacted.

Impatient drivers are cutting off other drivers who are following the law, or they’re veering off the state highway to “speed through the neighborhoods,” according to Police Chief John Fine.
