Roswell, GA: City working to establish lower speed limits (with speed detection devices) in certain areas

Drivers in Roswell will soon see a change in speed limits requiring them to slow down when moving through certain areas.

Requests to lessen speed limits were presented to Mayor and City Council on Nov. 26 by Transportation Department Director Steve Acenbrak and City Traffic Engineer Scott Brunner.

“Local municipalities have ability to establish speed limits on local roads, but in order to enforce them, they must get speed detection permits from Georgia Department of Public Safety and speed limits are set by DOT,” said Roswell City Traffic Engineer Scott Brunner.

A total of 13 speed limit modification requests were submitted to Georgia Department of Transportation, with six being approved.
