Right... but if I remember correctly, the claim was that the speed limit signs are technically invalid, because the FWSD's don't have that kind of authority, so speeding wouldn't be breaking a state traffic law, unless perhaps there is some 'default' speed limit set by Texas law. So...
1. Under whose authority were the speed limit signs in Lantana posted, and
2. Do they have the legal authority to post the signs and set speed limits so that they can be enforced, and,
3. If so, what law says that they have that authority? And...
4. If there weren't any speed limit signs, what would Texas law say the speed limit was, or would there not be one?

"Great news story last night on the excessive speeding here. I've been the lucky recipient of one ticket. HOWEVER, as an RN who advocates for children and safety...it's amazing to me how many "little" children are allowed to play in the streets in the many neighborhoods of our community. A part of accountability lies with parents. Even attentive parents are observed letting little kids as young as 4 play in the street. What is even more disturbing is that kids as young as 5 are riding their bikes in the streets. Hello? I ate soap and had a few belt swats for doing that as a child. Please remember our first priority is the kiddos!"
