Out-of-date speed limits

If this is a residential area, why is the posted speed limit 35 instead of 25?

We have MANY areas in this county where the speed limit has not kept pace with development. Porter's Neck Road is a prime example. When it was a sparsely populated country road, 55 was fine. It was dropped to 45 as more and more people moved in. Look at the number of driveways and subdivisions and it becomes readily apparent that 45 is now too fast. It should be 35. (Tangential issue, why does NHCS no longer set up radar on that road every couple of weeks, as they used to?)

No reduction in speed will save every animal, but in this case it could just as easily been a child.
