TOMS RIVER – At a recent Township Council meeting, the speed limits of two roads by High School East were reduced.
The entire lengths of Dunedin Street and Raider Way will now be 25 mph, lowered from 35 mph.
A resident had requested the reduction, Traffic Safety Officer Steven Schwartz said. In making the decision, officials noted that the new speed limit conforms with statutory suggested speed limits for a residential street.
The closeness of High School East and even East Dover Elementary on Vaughn Avenue were taken into consideration as well.
