Speed limits have been set or were changed on a total of 27 local streets in Charlotte County.

The list of streets effected in on page #8 of the June 17, 2014 Charlotte Sun.

So, here is the list of roadways where there was a speed limit change. In most cases, the speed limit was lowered, although there were a couple of locations where the speed limit was increased.

The Sheriff’s Office will be looking out for people violating the new speed limits, but, in the beginning, the goal is to help make people aware of the changes. So make sure you pay attention to the speed limit signs as you travel. They may be different than the last time you looked.

I noticed they changed the speed limit on Veteran's Blvd in front of Lakes of Tuscana from 35 to 40. They always had a speed trap there. On Veterans Blvd the speed goes from 55 to 45 and then to 40 as you get closer to Kings Highway.

Must have lowered the speed limit on Tucker's Grade to protect the armadillos. There is literally nothing on that dead straight stretch of road.

Its ticket time. This will generate bucks for the sheriff for a while. Honestly, what difference does the 5mph make?

Well, if the speed limit is 35 mph, I tend to go a little faster. So maybe 5 mph less would make a difference in my case.
