Whenever a local authority determines upon the basis of an engineering and traffic
survey that the prima facie limit of 25 miles per hour is more than is reasonable
and safe on any portion of a street having a grade in excess of 10 percent, the local
authority may by ordinance determine and declare a maximum limit of 20 or 15 miles
per hour, whichever is found most appropriate and is reasonable and safe. The declared maximum speed shall be effective when appropriate signs giving notice
thereof are erected upon the street.
