Challenges to speed limit

The speed limit on the road is sign-posted at 35 miles per hour. In the spring of 2012, six motorists who received speeding tickets filed a motion to have their violations dismissed because the speed limit is artificially low. The plaintiffs want to be able to see a copy of a 1967 engineering study which was conducted in order to have the speed limit set at 35 mph as opposed to the 55 mph the road is designed for. [1]
