Letter: Motorists should stick to posted speed limits during bridge work
Placeholder Image

My concern is with the traffic on Ga. 53 at the meeting of Hall and Forsyth counties. There is a bridge construction in progress and the posted speed limits are 45, 35, 45 mph. Even if the crews are not working, is still a posted speed. That does not mean people should be right on your bumper, flashing their high beams or leaving them on and harassing you. This happens mainly going from the bridge towards Gainesville in the mornings.

You know there is construction and the speed is posted; it’s only slowing your commute by three minutes. Be considerate and leave your house five minutes earlier. I think there should be a police presence just past the bridge to stop the harassment. The speed limit is posted; please follow it.
