    Lower speed limits. That’s just great. The county should just post one big sign on every road entering the county. ALL ROADS 25 MPH. Just be done with it. Let me tell you, every time I drive Military Road or Arlington Ridge I make sure I drive exactly as posted or little under (just to make sure I only bruise the kids running wild in the street). …and if someone is coming out of their drive I slow down even more just so they know the new limits are working.
