Legal Question

Asked on: 9/19/13, 10:14 pm

Visitor: I am sorry to bother you, but if you could clarify something for me, I would very much appreciate it. According to the definition of "urban district," the stretch of road on 46th Street heading east from 46th Ave s through the Park, and then onto the Intercity Bridge, cannot be counted as an "urban district." The territory contiguous with that road is almost completely empty of any business, residential, or industrial structures. But if this is right, then the statutory speed limit for this area defaults to 55 mph unless, pursuant to 169.14 Sub.2a (8)(c), it is changed to 35mph. This would mean that the speed trap on the Intercity Bridge/Ford Parkway and Mississippi Blvd. S has, strictly speaking, no basis in law if motorists are cited for speeds of less than 55 mph prior to reaching the speed sign on the east side of that intersection. Thoughts?
