Dalton Gardens Wants Slower Traffic

Traffic calming might seem like an oxymoron, but Dalton Gardens city officials hope it is the key to preserving the town's rural roots. The city is seeking a grant for a "traffic calming" project aimed at slowing traffic on Fourth Street from Dalton Avenue to Prairie Avenue. Sandwiched between Coeur d'Alene and Hayden, the city's stretch of Fourth Street is fronted by residential homes and mini farms on acre-sized lots. At 25 mph, the city's speed limit is lower than the other cities' portions of Fourth Street. City Councilman Steve Roberge said the majority of drivers don't bother to slow down as they pass through Dalton Gardens/Taryn Thompson, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you abide by the 25 mph speed limit on the 4th Street stretch in Dalton Gardens?
