Rock Springs Road
The speed limit is only 25 mph. It’s easy to go 35+ mph downhill if you don’t use your brakes, and there’s no logical reason for the speed limit to be less than 35; the road is wide, paved and not too curvy with few houses. It’s common for cars to go as fast as 45 mph. The low speed limit acts to make this shortcut somewhat slower than taking U.S. 70N and S.R. 96 if you obey all speed limits, which adds mileage and thus wastes fuel, costing more money and creating more greenhouse gas emissions. The only other direct way between Gentry and downtown Buffalo Valley is narrower, less known and similarly speed trapped.
