Pump the brakes: Mishawaka speed limit proposal stalls for now

The proposed speed limit changes in Mishawaka are waiting at a red light for the time being.

The proposal, which would raise speed limits on 13 streets by 5 or 10 mph failed to come to a vote Monday night. That’s because residents of the Normain Heights neighborhood raised concerns about Main Street, according to the South Bend Tribune.

Neighborhood association President Ruth Pavich pointed out that dozens of houses in that neighborhood have no choice but to back out onto Main Street to leave their houses. That, she says is tricky enough already with 30 mile-per-hour traffic. Other residents pointed out that they have had to call Mishawaka Police to enforce the current speed limit.

Discussion of amendments regarding Main Street began Monday night. However, those discussions will continue at the Dec. 5 meeting.
