The highest concentration of vehicular accidents within the Town of Mount Pleasant occur along our main thoroughfares of US 17 and Coleman Blvd. This is partially due to the roadway volumes, but it is also due to excessive speeds on these facilities. The traffic signal timings are coordinated based upon the posted speed limit of the roadway. If you travel at the posted speed limit there is a higher likelihood of receiving a green signal at each intersection as you progress along the corridor, regardless of direction. Conversely, if you travel above the posted speed limit, you will be more likely to be stopped at a traffic signal prematurely because you will arrive prior to the planned coordination. Beyond the obvious fact that driving within the posted speed limit is in general safer for you and other motorists, speeding will not decrease your travel time within the Town. Please demonstrate caution and show respect for your neighbors by driving the posted speed limit throughout the Town.
