Re: “House approves an increase in highway speed limits

Also, in Texas people obey the speed limits because they are set at a reasonable limit. Just thought I'd leave that there.

Re: “House approves an increase in highway speed limits

Here's what I have to say. Speed DOES NOT KILL! It's the dumb people driving that kill. If speed kills, we might as well ban spoons for making people fat and giving them heart attacks. If speed kills, we might as well ban cars for running into other cars and killing people. Have any of y'all ever driven in Texas? Well I have, and I drove on interstates with 75 mph speed limits, a turnpike with an 85 mph speed limit, and several two lane rural highways with 60-70 mph speed limits, and yes there were multiple driveways and intersecting roads! If you happen to look at the statistics, you are actually less likely to end up in a speed related fatality in Texas than in Arkansas! Also, when I drove in Texas, people drive responsibly there, so maybe we should look up to them and drive more responsibly! We should also maybe be a little more stricter with our licensure program. And speeding also doesn't have to be so dangerous. People with driveways can just turn around in their driveways so they don't have to back out, and since most shoulders are pretty wide, they could pull into the shoulder so they can gain enough speed to get on the highway. Also, in Texas, when someone is coming on a slower car, most people down there are nice enough to move over onto the shoulder so you can pass easily and safely. Also, let's just face it. Most people we know here speed all the time, often going 5-10 mph over the speed limit, and to be quite honest we just don't often see that many fatalities due to speeding. So it's time we quit catering to the few wrecks that happen because of speeding, and face reality, which is that we all want to get places faster.
