The current speed limit on Front Street is 35mph. Front Street is a residential area with lots of children the limit should be 25mph.
The limit is 25mph on every other street in the area that is a neighborhood they even have children at play signs. On Front Street the limit doesn't go down to 25mph until you head downtown and away from the children.
On Christmas day a child was hit by a car, the girl driving was "going the speed limit" but didn't have time to stop. She had a suspended license hit a child and all she got was a ticket because she was going the speed limit.
I don't want to see this happen to my daughters or anyone else's children.
We, the undersigned, call on The City of Marietta to lower the speed limit on Front Street from 35 mph to 25mph.
This is what the limit is supposed to be in all residential areas.
