Topsail Beach speed limit

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Some Topsail Beach residents are concerned about the speed limit across the four mile stretch of North Anderson Boulevard near Surf City.

Several community members are continuing a campaign to get town leaders to change the speed limit from 45 mph to 35 mph. Residents are worried about pedestrian safety with fast moving traffic in the area, especially during tourism season.

However, this change was considered and dismissed last summer. Commissioner Linda Stipe voted against the change, saying that with heavy traffic , drivers cannot physically go 45 mph even if they want to.

But still, residents are worried that the speed limit will put beach goers at risk.

    They need a bridge over to the mainland to connect to Hwy 210 by Food Lion in Hampstead

    35 is to fast for pedestrians” might as well keep it 45″

  • guest45

    no way should that speed limit be dropped to 35, if that happens every old person with a golf cart will be out on the street doing 10mph and causing real wrecks and costing lives, that road is perfectly safe for 45, maybe it is time that NC starts checking drivers reflex’s as part of their license renenewal.
