People are speeding on our road. How do I get the speed limit lowered?

Any decision regarding speed limits must be based on facts and an objective analysis of the characteristics of the roadway. When a request is received to lower the speed limit on a county road, the Road Commission, the Michigan State Police, and a township Representative work together to conduct studies such as speed studies, accident analyses, and driving environment surveys.

 Recommendation is made based on an objective analysis of all the data collected. If a change in speed limit is in order, a Traffic Control Order is submitted to the Director of the Michigan State Police for approval.
