That’s right: 9.3 mph is the new speed limit

Some unusual new official speed limits have been instituted.

Speed limits are now 9.3 mph around the Martin Car Facility and Building 8, and members of the BRC Police hope employees take notice.

Being unusual is the point, patrolmen said. The odd number is intended to catch the attention of people driving in the areas so they internalize the new information.

Patrolmen in marked cars equipped with radar guns will monitor the area around Martin Car Facility, also known as the RIP, and Building 8, which is the hump signal shop.
