Ignore the 25 mph speed limit posted on an Old Bridge Road mailbox because county magistrates voted Tuesday to set the speed limit at 35. Drivers can go down Old Bridge Road, where many small children live and play, at the same speed they travel Hustonville Road.
But, it looks like it's all been a big misunderstanding.
Boyle County Fiscal Court passed an ordinance Tuesday to set speed limits on all county roads.
In the past, the county did not have an ordinance. Because state law sets the speed limit at 35 mph, if a lower speed was posted, technically, it was only a suggestion.
After a Wells Landing resident complained, the county began to draft an ordinance.
Old Bridge homeowners struck up a conversation about the speed limits at a neighborhood association meeting.
The association president, Gene Mallory, said the residents thought they could have the speed limits on their roads set at 35 mph or have no speed limit. However, Duane Campbell, county engineer, divided up the county roads into three speed categories: 15 mph, 25 mph and 35 mph.
