Lower speed limit would reduce accidents


To the Editor:

Lately there has been a rash of accidents at the intersection of U.S. 2 and Country Club Road near Ironwood. I have heard many comments about that intersection. Some want more signage or lights.

I think that the answer to this problem is a no-brainer. I’ve been driving since 1965 and this is the only stoplight-controlled intersection that I have seen where the speed limit is 55 mph. If the speed limit was reduced to 35 mph a reasonable distance from the intersection, the problem would take care of itself.
