Campaign to remind drivers of Skyline Drive speed limit
LURAY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Skyline Drive through the Shenandoah National Park is a popular route to take for beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
But the speed limit on the 105-mile-long road is just 35 miles per hour along most of its length.
So the National Park Service is reminding drivers to slow down and drive safely down the curvy route.
If a vehicle does run off the road, it might not be the easiest thing to retrieve, such as a white pick-up that needed a heavy-duty lift from a ravine.
The Shenandoah National Park has just launched a campaign to raise awareness about the speed limit on the scenic route.
Drivers can get onto Skyline Drive near Front Royal, Luray, Elkton and just outside of Waynesboro.
