This reminds me... Oregon DOT centralizes all speed limits in the state, no
other agency or jurisdiction has the authority to set or modify speed
limits in that state, so every speed limit on every last inch of pavement
in that state is part of reusable by us under the Oregon sunshine law.

I've been looking at what it's going to take to handle county road

membership population, since we're talking about hundreds (thousands?) of
routes per county...
