We're going to have to find something different to complain about while driving along Bridgeway.
For years the speed limit on Bridgeway in the northern half of Sausalito ping-ponged back and forth between 30 and 35, depending on the stretch of road. Local cynics alleged it was a way to raise revenue by generating more speeding violations when drivers missed a drop in the limit.
Late last month the City made a series of changes that replaced this pattern in an uncharacteristically logical way: as you head into Sausalito from the northern Highway 101 off-ramp the limit is 30, so when you reach Spring St. and hit the 25 mph zone that parallels Caledonia you weren't going too much faster.
North of Spring St., when you've left downtown, the limit is now 35 as you head towards the freeway, and it stays that way all the way to the 101 on-ramp.
Signs were quietly changed and pavement repainted in late March. We had to look carefully to realize there was a difference.
So help us out here. We need a new Sausalito Conspiracy Theory now that the City has ruined this one. Whaddaya got?
