Calls U.S. 30 speed limit a scam

June 26, 2019
Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Dear Editor:

There is no greater scam in Iowa than the area in which speed on Highway 30 in your service area is reduced from its reasonable rate to 55 miles per hour. Wait, the speed cameras on I-380 in Cedar Rapids would be a close runner-up.

Wake up, Iowa DOT, and keep speeds consistent and well-paced. If I drive 55mph, tractors are likely to pass me.

We can do better as a society and not waste money and effort on enforcement of poorly-managed roadways. Tama and Toledo suffer commerce loss, I presume, from people who are frustrated with speed traps.

Come together and get the speed limit where it needs to be, 70 mph.
