Why can't I have a lower speed limit in my neighborhood?
Section 545.356 of the Texas Transportation Code establishes the process which a municipality must follow to establish a speed limit. The code provides that a municipality may lower the speed limit on a roadway to not less than 25 mph without a traffic and engineering study which justifies a lower speed limit. Speed zones which do not meet these criteria are not enforceable.

The Texas Department of Transportation and the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control provides the guidelines for the studies which must be performed. How speed limits are set.
