The Fayetteville City Council passed an ordinance to change the default residential speed limit, and it takes effect this Saturday, Nov. 6.
- Slower: The speed limit will be lowered from 25 to 20 mph, which is a speed that has been shown to decrease pedestrian deaths by half. The change will apply to the residential streets that do not currently have speed limit signs.
- Patrol: There will be a 30 day grace period for speeding violations in the areas affected by the change. Traffic patrol will increase by requests, which can be made through the Fayetteville Police Department non-emergency number: 479-587-3555.
