According to the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, each individual state is responsible for setting its own speed limits. This means the speed limit in residential areas differs from state to state. For instance, in California, the speed limit in residential areas is 25 miles per hour. Yet, in the state of Florida the limit is 30 miles per hour.Know More
When no sign is posted, each state has a set speed limit in residential areas. Generally, the speed limit ranges between 25 to 35 miles per hour. For instance, the following states have a speed limit of 30 miles per hour in residential areas: Colorado, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, South Carolina, Texas and Wyoming.
Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Maine, Michigan and Nebraska all have speed limits of 25 in residential areas, and New Hampshire, New Jersey and Kentucky have limits of 35. Some states, such as Nevada, New York and Connecticut, do not have a specific speed limit for residential areas, which means the state speed limit is in effect when no sign is posted. Since the state speed limits are much higher, when no sign is posted it is legal to drive though a New York residential area at the state speed limit of 55 miles per hour.Learn more about Driving Laws
