ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Aspen city council members are considering a 14 mph speed limit in a residential area of the Colorado mountain town in attempt to get the attention of drivers and have them slow down.

Residents say few drivers are obeying the current 25 mph speed limit and are ignoring other efforts to protect people.

The Aspen Times (http://tinyurl.com/9wlktaz ) reports Mayor Mick Ireland suggested an 18 mph limit because the number is out of the ordinary for a speed limit. After further discussion, council members decided to drop the proposed limit down to 14 mph.
