Saddle Ridge residents call for speed control


Saddle Ridge residents took Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen to task because the subdivision narrowly misses the technical requirements needed to install speed bumps on its roads.

“We have an issue and the issue is speed,” said Jeff Goodman, a member of Saddle Ridge’s homeowners’ association board, during Citizen’s Forum at the Board meeting Thursday night, April 28.

According to Goodman, Saddle Ridge had requested a traffic study to check motorist speeds along Saddle Ridge Drive, which Town staff recently completed with traffic counter tubes. The speed limit along Saddle Ridge Drive is 25 miles per hour.

The traffic study found the 85th percentile speeds — the speeds at which 85 percent of motorists were traveling under — were 33.8 and 33.6 miles per hour.
