Lowered speed limit a ‘dumb idea’

Let me get his straight – the Bike Path Design Committee has proposed and the Jamestown Town Council is considering having the speed limit on the Great Creek stretch of North Road lowered to 25 mph?

That’s not sharing the road. That’s everyone else being inconvenienced for the purported benefi t of a handful of fair-weather two-wheelers. I hope the folks on East Shore Road are ready for a big increase in traffic flow if our major highway into town is turned into a bike path, not to mention the extra cross-town traffic on Narragansett as Northerners go to the post office and McQuade’s.

Who comes up with dumb ideas like this?
