Spokane Valley To Assess Speed Limits

You could be seeing some revised speed limits in Spokane Valley soon. The City Council has set aside time to reasses current speed limits at it's Nov. 15 meeting, but will be looking at one area in particular, the Indiana and Mission parkways.

The city has received over 100 letters complaining about the current 25 mile per hour speed limit in that area, suggesting the city has essentially created a speed trap for businesses and their customers in the area.

The Spokane Valley News Herald has the story.
