Current law requires county and municipal authorities (authorities) to conduct a traffic investigation or survey before increasing or decreasing the speed limits within the authority's jurisdiction. The bill allows the authority to also consider the following factors:
- Road characteristics;
- Current and future development;
- Environmental factors;
- Parking practices;
- Pedestrian and bicycle activity in the vicinity; and
- Crash statistics from the most recent year.
