Is there a limit to how far a speed limit sign can be away from the street?
How close does a speed limit sign need to be to the edge of the road?
I recieved a ticket in a school zone due to missing the blinking yellow lights on the reduced speed limit sign. The sign looks like it sits more than 50ft from the side of the road and up on a hill. It's doesn't seem to be mounted in an ideal place.
After looking http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/HTM/2003r1/par... I can't seem to find the info on speed limit signs or any signs about regulations for how close they need to be to the road.
This is for tennessee but I think it falls under federal Uniform Traffic Controls.
If you can find it I need a souce to .. thanks
7B.03 only says how far away it needs to be, but is there a distance on how close it needs to be?
Additional Details I need the maximum lateral distance from the roadside
I've found 2 websites on maintaining speed limit signs... neither say anything about the distance from the road.
It looks like little cases have popped up here and there regarding things such as this. My best advice would be to take it to court and state your case - that you feel the sign is too far from the road. Take pictures with you.
It may not seem to be in the most appropriate place to you; however you're not going to beat your ticket by this method. My suggestion to you is fork up to not being as alert as you should have been & just pay the fine. No city would ever place a speed limit sign where it would keep people able to beat a ticket. Almost all school zones are 20mph & thats all anyone should ever be doing when school is in session. Stop speeding, starting paying attention to laws & you woudln't have to pay for a ticket.
