ASPEN, CO (KTVI) – For most people there are numbers we relate to as references and milestones in our lives. For example, you can have a baker’s dozen, have a sweet sixteen party, vote at age eighteen and celebrate a twenty-five year anniversary. Commonly left out these familiar numbers is fourteen, but that may be changing for one town.

According to the Aspen Times, the city’s council members are seriously exploring decreasing one of their residential areas’ speeding limit from 25 mph to 14 mph. The discussion has been spurred after several complaints from residents about drivers speeding through the congested neighborhood located in the West End.

Fourteen was selected based on its uniqueness for not being regularly posted as a speed limit.
