Need to enforce the speed limit

By Debbie Newkirk | Published Wednesday, November 20, 2013

I recently moved to Decatur, and I’m wondering why Decatur and Wise County can’t get a handle on the dangerous speeding traffic on U.S. 287?

The posted speed limit is 55 mph (in town) and 70 mph (outside the city limit). Please enforce the speed limit!

I have to drive this stretch every day and dread it. There are so many accidents and fatalities on this highway.
