An Ordinance To Restrict Low Speed Vehicles In Bristol TN
The Bristol Tennessee City Council refused an ordinance to prohibit low-speed gasoline or electric vehicles from using city streets allowing speeds of over 25 mph. A 2-2 vote killed the ordinance as a third of the vote was needed. The proposed ordinance was supported by Bristol City Manager Jeff Broughton and Police Chief Blaine Wade. They believe the practice is dangerous and creates a false sense of security for the motorist as these type vehicles will not survive a high-impact collision. Some major Bristol roads like the Volunteer Parkway have motorists driving over 50 mph or twice the speed of these type vehicles. They donít believe the ordinance would excessively restrict low-speed vehicles as most streets in the city have 25 mph speed limits. (bg)
