Speed limits on back roads of Duvall

   I am upset about the speed limits on some of the back roads in Duvall. It is ridiculous how slow the speed limit is.

   Although I do not drive yet, I was with my mother the other night, driving to town. She was going 35 in a 25 zone. The officer who stopped her was kind enough to let her go with just a verbal warning. Even going 35, it seemed as though we would never get there.

   I know the speed limit is for our protection, but I think it is a little over-protective. It should be raised so the people of Duvall can actually get somewhere in a reasonable amount of time.
