Golden Gate officials consider 25 mph toll speed
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Golden Gate Bridge officials are considering raising the speed limit at the toll plaza ahead of the move to all-electronic tolling.
Officials want to increase the maximum speed from 5 to 25 miles an hour as part of the switch to all-electronic toll collection. They say it would help increase traffic flow on the bridge.
The Board of Directors is expected to vote on increasing the speed limit on Friday. If approved, the new speed would go into effect next Wednesday -- the same day the new electronic system goes online.
