Re: Repeal of the National Speed Limit Law
The 55 mph speed limit is a joke right now because almost everyone exceeds it
here in the SF Bay Area on the freeways. 65 is more like the lower limit,
traffic permitting. I would rather see a 65 mph speed limit strictly enforced
to keep those people doing 75+ in check. As someone said, it's the speed
differential that causes accidents. BTW, I've always noticed that in Southern
California, all lanes of traffic tend to move at a more uniform speed. Has
anyone else noticed this and are there fewer accidents per vehicle mile there?
