If you live in or drive through Walker, your commute may be getting a little faster.
A state law passed in 2006 requires municipalities to raise speed limits that are too low. A speed limit is considered too low if 85% of drivers are already exceeding it. The speed limit then must be raised to whatever speed 85% of drivers are already traveling.
Walker will be raising the speed limit on many roads over the next several weeks due to the law.
