ACBOS Approve Funding For New Traffic Studies 

The Amador County Board of Supervisors have approved funding for new traffic studies on a number of county roads. The Amador Board recently voted to spend just under $20,000 dollars, from the county contingency funds, on speed studies for a list of county roads. The request for the new studies came primarily from the local CHP office, in order to aid their traffic enforcement efforts. Ten different county roads will be covered in the studies, including Clinton, Curran and Climax roads, Fiddletown Road through Fiddletown itself, Camanche Road near the lake entrance, and Upper Ridge Road between Highway 88 and Dapple Drive. The speed studies do not necessarily always result in lower speed limits, the recommended speed limit can even increase, but without the speed studies, law enforcement lack the legal basis to write speeding citations.
