Council approves minor speed limit changes
The Paso Robles City Council voted Tuesday night to approve a number of changes to posted speed limits on various road segments throughout town.
The State requires that a speed survey be taken every five years if the city wishes to use radar for traffic speed enforcement. Speed limits must be set at the closest 5 m.p.h. increment to the 85th percentile of free flowing traffic. The survey and recommended changes will effect eight areas of town. Five road segments will see increases to the posted speed limit, while three others will experience reductions. All changes are just plus or minus 5 m.p.h.

- South Vine St. from 1st St to 46 West will increase from 45 to 50 m.p.h.
- Union Road from North River Road to Kleck will increase from 40 to 45 m.p.h.
