Pay attention to new reduced speeds this month.


O




regon’s roads are on average slower than most states, but not the slowest.

Speed limits travel a wide spectrum. As the saying goes, “everything’s bigger in Texas,” and this extends to speed limits which cap at 85 mph. Alaska has the slowest, with a top speed of 55 mph, according to USA Today.

This month be cautious of the new reduced speeds in Bend put in place by the Oregon Department of Transportation. Following a community input analysis this last summer, speed limits have been lowered in these areas:

• Second Street between Wilson Avenue and the northbound parkway—from 35 to 30 mph

• Colorado Avenue from the northbound Parkway ramp to Industrial Way—from 35 to 25 mph

• Arizona Avenue from Industrial Way to Colorado Avenue—from 35 to 25 mph

• Reed Market Road between 15th Street and 27th Street—from 40 to 35 mph



With the arrival or winter (finally), it is especially important to pay attention to speed. The reduced speed zones will be clearly marked with orange warning flags on top to call attention to the changes. So, take an extra moment to look for the warning signs, while singing to the radio.

Not since the start of the Nuclear Arms Race between America and Russia, 64 years ago in 1953 has the minutes sat so close to proclaimed "doom."
