Re: “Who sets speed limits in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes?

I've always wondered about that. I used to live in Lafayette from 1978-1987 and most streets there seem to be set at a higher speed. The residential streets there are set at 25 MPH. Many major artieries like W. Congress St and Johnston St are set at 40-45 MPH where similar type streets here in Jefferson Parish are set at 35-40 MPH. Most of Ambassador Caffery Pkwy is set at 50 MPH and that's a 4 lane at grade undivided street with a center turn lane with traffic lights! This is the same speed as the Pontchartrain Expressway from I-10 at Claiborne Ave to the West Bank Expressway which I think really should be set at 60 MPH.
