2019 House Bill 4118: Authorize unposted 25 mph limit on non-subdivision local streets

Public Act 31 of 2019

Introduced by Rep. Bradley Slagh (R) on January 29, 2019
To establish an unposted speed limit of 25 mph on streets including highway segments that are designated as “local,” if the local jurisdiction has designated the road to be part of their street system, and if it is within land zoned for residential use. Under current law subdivision streets are automatically considered to have a 25 mph speed limit and no speed limit signs need be posted; the bill would have the effect of extending this posting exception to other residential streets that are not in subdivisions.   Official Text and Analysis.

To establish an unposted speed limit of 25 mph on streets including highway segments that are designated as “local,” if the local jurisdiction has designated the road to be part of their street system, and if it is within land zoned for residential use. This would apply until 2024, and by 2023 the Michigan State Police would have to complete a speed study on roads of this type to determine what the permanent limits and posting requirements should be. Under current law subdivision streets are automatically considered to have a 25 mph speed limit and no speed limit signs need be posted; the bill would have the effect of extending this posting exception to other residential streets that are not in subdivisions.
