Results of Sheriff’s speed study in TWE: On July 6, Franklin County Sheriff Bill Overton shared the findings of the speed study with representatives of the WEPOA.  Only 7.5% of the ~1500 vehicles measured for speed were exceeding 35mph in a 25mph zone.  Most of the speeding vehicles were commercial vehicles.  The Sheriff said that no enforcement action was taken during this study, and that ongoing increased Sheriff patrols in TWE is part of a county-wide initiative to increase visibility across parts of the county where Deputies have traditionally not frequented.  A full summary, including possible next steps is available in this file:
