I just read the Dec. 23 article Push to raise speed limits sets off debate. How dangerous and absurd. The people on I-95 drive about 70-80 miles per hour unless there is a traffic jam. We avoid that highway in the morning and after 5 p.m. when traffic is heavy. Sometimes a motorcyclist goes by at 85-90 mph, usually with no helmet.
I don’t think there are enough patrols to catch them. I’m a careful driver who tries to go with the flow of traffic, but it scares me when drivers go as fast as they do, without regard for the posted limits.
Our legislators should to leave the speed limits alone and just hire more highway patrol officers.
