Letter to the Editor: Lowering speed limits

I was wondering if anyone has noticed DelDOT is lowering the speed limits on some of the roads. In my opinion it is being done without notification and justification. These roads have been improved significantly. They have been widened,with turn lanes, bike paths and sidewalks.

Housing developments are set back a considerable distance from the road. With all these improvements. I don’t see the logic in lowering the speed limit just because there are more houses.

I guess the police have been informed of the changes because they are already sitting there to ticket you unaware drivers.

The two roads I am referring to is Brenford and Hillyard. Brenford was reduced from 50 to 35 and Hillyard from 50 to 40. Why? There have not been any accidents on these roads to warrant this action.
