Republican Town Committee recommends 25 mph speed limit


The Canton Republican Town Committee (CRTC) voted unanimously at its September 5 meeting to recommend that the town of Canton adopt a maximum speed limit of 25 mph on all Canton roads and streets effective immediately. This policy would exclude state roads such as Route 138 and federal highways such as I-95.

Members of the CRTC expressed serious concern for the safety of children walking to and returning from school as well as individuals jogging, senior citizens walking, individuals pushing baby carriages, and cyclists. Autos are simply driving too fast on Washington, Dedham, Chapman, Neponset and York streets, among others. Even side streets are experiencing thoughtless drivers going 35 to 40 mph. This must be ended as soon as possible before tragedy strikes.

This speed limit has been adopted by our neighboring town of Randolph, and the city of Boston began a 25 mph limit in January of this year. The CRTC urges all interested parties to urge the elected officials of Canton to adopt this speed limit to protect the citizens of Canton from being harmed by speeding vehicles.
