Exclamation No speed limits in VA!

2nd bill got shot down today!
this one had a speed limit of 35 at night with bass tournament exception, also requiring spotter's in boats for skiers and tubers, and mandatory education, but none of it went thru, we were really hoping for the education bill but we will have to wait untill the next bill with it in it, should be in the next day or so,
but once again NO SPEED LIMITS!!!!!!!!: : :

Thumbs up Re: No speed limits in VA!

Excellent!!!

One hopes that everyone would use common sense when running at night though.....

But if they passed a night limit, it would only be a matter of time they passed a day limit too!

Does anyone know what the convincing argument was in the defeat?

He would do that anyway. No Speeds on the James, just the ponds.

the state wide stats did not support boat speed as a major problem.
