Route 66 speed limit needs rethinking
To the editor:
I very strongly agree that the 25 mph speed limit on Route 66 is not only antiquated but dangerous. I recently have had to drive to Westhampton a lot for my dog. The first time driving back to Northampton down a big hill, I had no idea that the speed limit would suddenly change so much, and a policeman was waiting for me shortly after I crossed the line into Northampton. I am not a speeder and sort of felt like I was tricked. In addition, I, too, have witnessed cars coming very close together as some try to observe the very slow speed limit and others don’t slow down as much.
