While we are still on the subject of the Ponoka Stampede, I would like to question the need for the speed limit reduction on Highway 53 to 30 km/h prior to 50th Street. It seems like overkill and is a real annoyance to those of us on the east side of 50th Street.
It would be interesting to know who decides where to begin the post of this speed limit.
Is it the Town of Ponoka, the Ponoka Stampede Association, or the RCMP? Are there statistics showing this is an accident area?
