Senators Martinez Humenik and Kefalas presented House Bill 18-1191 to the committee. Under current law, counties and municipalities may change a speed limit on a local road if a traffic investigation or survey indicates a change is justified. This bill requires counties and municipalities to also consider the following criteria when adjusting speed limits on local roads:
• road characteristics;
• current and future development;
• environmental factors;
• pedestrian and bicycle activity; and
• crash statistics.
