    First responders and blaring sirens through this section of town are almost a daily occurrence anymore. Maybe we need to reduce speed limit on Mission starting before Winterhaven instead of further north past preserve. I for one would support 35 mph speed limit in this area that has had such a horrific history of serious traffic accidents.

    Nothing will change without enforcement. There isn’t much of that. People already drive way to fast. They are still driving 50 MPH on Mission past the posted 35 at the preserve. I actually had somebody pass me in the turn lane on Main Street the other day. I was going 25 which is the speed limit. She was just impatient. Plus I saw a warning alert on FOF by a concerned citizen the other day of a speed trap on Old Stage. Beware, instead of actually driving slower.

    It is about 5 miles from mission/76 to main street; 50 mph takes about 6 minutes; traveling at 60 mph reduces your time to about 5 minutes. IS that one minute really worth it? Now take into consideration the lights; I have had people shoot pass me only for me to catch up at the light. Here to Vegas, freeway – ten miles an hour is noticeable quicker, but around town? Slow down and enjoy the ride –
