Coalition Winning Support To Lower Speed Limit On Area Death Trap

Activists in Washington and Waukesha Counties, led by the Highway J Coalition, are finally winning wider legislative support to get the speed limit lowered on one stretch of roadway where people are dying in traffic crashes.

WisDOT broke faith with the people in that area when a road-widening that was rammed through over strong public objection included a jump in the speed limit that put motorists and residents needlessly at risk.

It's time to fix that now, before there are more fatalities.
