Why didn't the city of Victoria think about this in the first place? To build a High School at an Hwy is idioic. Build at the county line where the speed limit is 55 and we would not have this problem. Another question, why is the Stroman campus still named Vipers? Should be the original name Stroman Raiders!! Dumb A--es. Should have left well enough alone.
None of this would be necessary IF, I don't need to write the obvious the entire town knows it!
55mph near the new high school is the right thing to do. Doing 70 mph in that area is very dangerous with all the traffic and traffic lights. Make it 70 again about 1/3-1/2 miles north of the tropical drive intersection. Have a sheriff's unit there to ticket the speeders in the mornings and after school is out. If it is left at 70 mph someone will get killed and that just might be a student trying to cross the highway, and nobody wants that to happen. I live in Nursery and don't mind going 55mph for another few thousand feet.
Speed limit should stay the same at 70. Why drive slow it take longer go places. People now how to drive when they see red light and wait for people pass bye.
