    Default 14th Street NW speed limit change

    Now maybe it's because I'm a wee bit older than the average beyond member and I don't notice things but when exactly did the speed limit on 14th Street NW between 5th and 20th Avenues north get changed to 50kph?

    I could've sworn it was 60kph within the last week but now both directions are posted at 50kph and there's plenty of signage to remind you. I wonder if this is in preparation for the street level crosswalk that'll replace the rickety old pedestrian overpass at the bottom of the hill?

    Literally the day Druh Farrell had some comments on the extremely overpriced new overpass crosswalk that was being built to replace the old one.

    Roughly two weeks ago. I remember seeing the article then driving past later in the day and seeing the signs were down to 50.

    Well I guess it could've been at least two weeks since I've been through that way. Could very well be a honey pot for CPS now.

    That’s why I take 19st where you can do at least 70 past Finboy’s house.
    I like neat cars.
