Brown said the road was just opened and that many in the Mohr-Martin neighborhood who opposed the extension in the first place at least urged the city to restrain speeders.
But Police Chief Dave Spiller said motorists ticketed for speeding in a zone that didn't meet state requirements could have their tickets dismissed in court. Excessive speeds, he said in response to a question from Brown, could warrant a ticket for reckless driving, but not speeding.
Tassano said the 35 mph posted speed limits would remain unchanged on Stoneridge between Trevor Parkway and Santa Rita Road although the section at Trevor has not yet been surveyed.
The City Council voted 4-1 to approve the speed limit change on Stoneridge. The new 40 mph signs are already posted on Stoneridge between Trevor Parkway and El Charro Road.
