It's critically important that we maintain the 25 mph speed limit on all ranch roads!
|Three simple reasons:|
Vehicles traveling faster than 25 mph tend to lift up the road base and throw valuable material off to the side.
Vehicles traveling faster than 25 mph cause a washboard effect that makes for very dangerous driving conditions.
To resurface one mile of road costs $12,000 to $14,000 of property owners' money. If treated properly, resurfaced roads can stay in good condition for years. If treated improperly, resurfaced roads will return to bumpy, dangerous surfaces within a few weeks!
We've had many accidents on the Santa Fe Trail Ranch, and EVERY SINGLE ACCIDENT WAS CAUSED BY SOMEONE DRIVING TOO FAST !
Please remember to check your speedometer when driving on ranch roads. If you're going over 25 mph, you're destroying our roads, wasting our money, and are probably a candidate for an accident – or worse. There's a good chance you'll run someone else off the road.
Please encourage your visitors and your contractors to maintain the 25 mph speed limit.
