The city says motorists, and drivers of large trucks in the downhill lanes, have difficulty adjusting to the change.

Changing the speed limit to 80km/hr beginning at the top of the hill will facilitate compliance with the posted speed limit,” reads a media release from the city. “Hamilton Police Services will be enforcing the new speed limit for the entire length of the RHVP beginning Monday.”
