A lot of roads (particularly highways) here in the US have pointlessly low speed limits — lower than what they should be based on the safety and design of the roadway. But which limit is the most punitively low?

Post the most mindlessly low limit you’ve ever encountered below. Include:

  • the name of the road
  • the section of the road in question
  • and a link to where that road is on Google Maps so that people can agree or disagree with you

You get bonus points if you link to news stories about the road in question.
