Is there any other docs on this?? Aside from being ridiculus, one would think there is more of a reason, some kind of reason? At 35 mph I would think it would take a life time to cross the lake.

I hope I read this right. Not much of an article.

It says islands, not island waters. I believe you are right.

For God's sake guys relax.

The speed limit is ON THE ISLAND.
If you can't read at least ask a local.

How fast is your golf cart anyway?

35 mph on tourist crowded undersized streets full of golf carts, bikes and walkers is completely appropriate.
We are talking small islands here.

If they posted a 35 mph speed limit on key west would everybody think that they meant the OCEAN?

Middle Bass is one of the larger ones.

3.5 miles by 1.5 miles.

There is no Autoban.

North Bass.

35 miles an hour just might be enough to get across in one day.

We see those two words and panties just naturally bunch up... One of those natural phenomonahs of our universe....

Actually I would expect Tizbad to have a 40 mph golf cart.
