County Road Gets Speed Limit Signs Thanks To Students

As part of their safety driving campaign, Project Ignition, Shallowater students tracked drivers along County Road 1540 from U.S. 84 to FM 1294. They found the road to be widely traveled and expect traffic to increase as additional houses are built in the area. So, Monday they took their concerns to Lubbock County Commissioners, requesting speed limit signs.

"Whenever a fatality happens in a small town like Shallowater, it rips towns apart completely. We've had three deaths in the last year and we want to prevent that," said Shallowater High School Sophomore Bryson McCarty.

County Commissioners agreed to a 35 mile an hour speed limit in the residential area of County Road 1540 and a 45 mile an hour sign in the rural area. Signs will be ordered soon.
