Campground Speed Limit

Sometimes it's really difficult to maintain a campground's posted speed limit.

I've seen like 13 1/2 before. Though, this brings up a legitimate point- I think 5 mph, if enforced, is way too slow.

You won't think its to slow when a child is injured or killed because it wasn't enforced.

All I'm saying is at 5mph, my child over takes my vehicle when she's on her bike and she's 9. I just think it doesn't need to be *that* slow. I'm not advocating for 25mph or even un-enforced speed limit, but I think that 10mph is a realistic and proper speed limit (enforced).

I think they post speed limits like this to remind you to drive slow. The numbers are so unusual they catch your eye. I mean really, 7 MPH?

That I'm ok with, I just think it's excessive to yell from the gate house for doing 9. Just my opinion, and no I don't advocate for mowing children down for points and prizes.

That 7mph sign looks suspiciously like the ones at 370 Lakeside.

What about the child on a scooter or skateboard that falls, what about the child chasing his friends and comes running out of a campsite between trees. Think about it how would you feel if it was your child? It can happen and it doesn't mean parents aren't watching.

Geez, I just thought the speed limit signs were funny and interesting. Perhaps I shouldn't have posted these photos.
