The Best Highway Safety Practices Institute Rejects Clarion Calls for Failed Policy II: National 55 mph Speed Limit

PORTLAND, Ore., July 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Reenacting the failed
1974 National Maximum Speed Law is not a solution. The solution is to properly
engineer our roadways to facilitate the optimum flow of traffic, a
prescription that would reduce our total vehicular carbon footprint and
improve roadway safety. The future is in educating motorists to drive safely
via safety campaigns that promote keep right except to pass, yielding,
courtesy, and safety practices that are based in fact! Programs that create
jobs, reduce our carbon footprint, pollution, and improve the safety and
efficiency of our infrastructure.
