Speed Limit Guidance

“State law and the Manual On Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) regulate the procedures for establishing effective and enforceable speed limits. Title 23 V.S.A. Section 1007 authorizes the local governing body to establish effective and enforceable speed limits on town highways at not more than 50 MPH or less than 25 MPH and to do so on the basis of a traffic engineering investigation or study. This provision mandates that any speed limit must be justified and reasonable, based on the conditions that prevail on the particular road or street being considered.” (‐Vermont Local Roads Program, 1995)
