County Councilman Larry Hargett began receiving a lot of phone calls this week after a sign was posted on Dorchester Road saying: "Like Driving 35? Call Larry Hargett."
The state highway department lowered the speed limit on the road due to preliminary work kicking off .
"People don't like the speed limit being dropped to 35, but I didn't have anything to do with it," Hargett said.
Some portions of the road used to have a speed limit of 55 mph.
The sign was removed by Friday evening, presumably by Hargett who told Patch he would remove it as soon as possible.
