People are already driving at the "sinful" speed limits that you claim
will cause a higher degree of fatalities and accidents. The change in
the speed limit would simply keep them from becoming offenders of the law.
If everyday activity is a "crime", then people all become "criminals" and
lack of respect for the law results.
Laws should reflect the desires of our citizens, not simply provide a method
of extorting money from the populace.
