CORNING, Calif. - Speed limits are going up on several roads in Tehama County.
They include Corning Road, Old Highway 99 and Third Street.
Action News Now visited the town to find out why the speed limit is increasing and what people living there think.
Soon you'll get to drive faster in certain roads in corning.
"That sounds great to me it's always been kind of slow," said Mark Olsen, a business owner near Third Street.
So slow - the city decided to increase the speed limit.
"We do look into the number of collisions. we also look into the geometry of the roadway when we determine the speed limits also," said Robin Kampmann, the public works director for Corning.
Third street is just one of three roads where the city is increasing it by 10 miles per hour, but some people here say they don't approve.
"It's way too fast," said Troy Hafeli, manages Bartel's Giant Burger on Corning Road.
He adds that "we see so many accidents right here. its insane. just pulling out of our driveway or coming out of the intersection over this way. people coming off the freeway they don't look right."
The speed limit on Old Highway 99 is also going up - from 35 to 45 miles per hour.
"Hopefully they know what they're doing and people don't take advantage of that," said Monique Weichelt, a Corning resident.
"I don't think it's going to be that much of a problem myself," Olsen said.
