A new bill to drop the speed limit from 55 mph to 45 mph between Sunset Rd. and Jackson St. could be in effect as soon as September 27th.
City Council members passed the measure at its first hearing, and if they vote "yes" in late September, the new speed limit will take effect immediately.
Thomasville city officials say this measure will help the city be more consistent with the Georgia Dept. of Transportation's posted speed limits.
