It seems that the city is finally going to try to do something about the death trap known as I-10 here in El Paso.
Item 28.1 on the Tuesday, July 14, 2016 city council agenda reads:
Discussion and action to authorize the Mayor to request from the Texas Transportation Commission a reduction of the speed limit on Interstate 10 due to increased collisions during the recent construction period.
According to the backup material the police department reports that during the period April 1, 2015 to June 20, 2016 there were 359 accidents, 76 reported injuries, and 4 deaths on the stretch between Redd Road and Porfirio Diaz.
Maybe slowing traffic down will help mitigate the problem. We have all noticed the increase in aggressive driving recently.
Thank you mayor.
