Credit is due Travis Cunningham for discovering that a stretch of East Kellogg between Webb and Greenwich had a 45 mph speed-limit sign where the legal limit is 55 mph. It’s alarming that more than 500 drivers have paid nearly $60,000 in fines and court costs for “speeding” along that same stretch of Kellogg over the past seven years, which the city has concluded it can’t refund. But it is good that the city has decided that the problem is with the ordinance, not the 45 mph speed limit. The higher speed limit is not appropriate with all the commercial development and stoplights in quick succession. The Wichita City Council will consider on May 15 revising the city ordinance to match the speed limit.
