HENDERSON, Nev. - A viewer asks why the speed limit along Windmill Parkway between Eastern Avenue and Pecos Road fluctuates between 35 and 45 mph.
The speed limit on this stretch of Windmill was a topic of discussion by Henderson's Traffic Board in August. Some drivers want a consistent speed limit of 45 mph, but Henderson officials discussed lowering the speed limit to a steady 35 mph without jumps to 45 mph.
The city collected necessary data and decided current speed limits are correct. It's not a speed trap. The speed limit is justified, because a section of Windmill between Eastern and Pecos includes a school zone, dense landscaping and 23 access points. The measured average speed of drivers is also consistent with the 35 mph speed limit.
