City Reduces Speed Limits in Residential Neighborhoods
On August 4, 2020, the City of Bolivar reduced the speed limit on residential streets to 25 MPH effective immediately after receiving many calls from concerned citizens about speeding in residential neighborhoods.
The reduction of the speed limit to 25 MPH will be coupled with enhanced patrols of our residential neighborhoods by the Bolivar Police Department to ensure that the new speed limits are enforced. “Speeds in excess of 25 MPH are dangerous for both the citizens who live in our residential neighborhoods as well as our children who are at play. Our children are our most treasured asset and should be able to play outside in our neighborhoods without fear of motorists speeding down their streets,” said Mayor McTizic.
