A speed fight is occurring in the city of Marysville.

The mayor and the police chief say they're not happy with the recent speed-limit increase on U.S. Route 33.

The highway is now 70 mph inside city limits.

Mayor John Gore says he wants the limit reduced back to 65 through town.

Ohio Department of Transportation officials say it will conduct a traffic study to look at safety in the area, but that could cost the city.
