The speed limit on North Charles Seivers Boulevard from Clinch Avenue to Longmire Road in Clinton has been reduced from 45 miles an hour to 35 miles an hour. The change went into effect recently.
The Clinton Police Department said that the reduction in the speed limit is being made in response to an increased number of traffic accidents on that stretch of road during the past few months. Chief Rick Scarbrough said that the stretch of North Seivers from Maire Avenue to Longmire was the scene of 45 accidents last year alone.
The reduced speed limit will also be more consistent with the speed limits throughout the rest of the business district. The speed limit on South Charles Seivers Boulevard from Clinch to the Food City is also 35 miles an hour.
