Utah Raises Some Speed Limits To 80 MPH Because It's Safer
"After multi-year studies, Utah has raised a number of its highway speed limits to 80 miles an hour. They cited the same reasons of safety as the now-famous 'Speed Kills Your Pocketbook' documentary. Finally, a government making sense about speed."

Full article here: [link to jalopnik.com]

And here is the original "Speed Kills Your Pocket Book" video:



This video was shot in the city next to mine just to give you an idea of the bullshit we deal with in British Columbia.

I know some people probably don't care too much about this... but for me and many others, it's a big deal. I've spent hundreds on fines for "speeding" in areas where the speed limit is much lower than it should be. And when I've been pulled over... they always say some fear mongering bullshit like "You could have hit a child!" ... even though I was far from any schools or residential areas.

In my city, 2 of our Councillors are advocating a reduction to our general in-town speed limit: 50km/hr down to 40 km/hr. That's about 30 mph(current speed limit) down to 25 mph. All in the name of safety, of course. Nothing to do with all the $$$$ that they KNOW will generate from tickets. rolleyes2

Speed does not kill it is lack of concentration and awareness that kills people at speed.

And where a large portion of traffic is doing eighty while sharing a lane with traffic doing a lower posted limit it causes more high speed lane changes and corresponding accidents too.

Good move Utah,

I can sympathize with your frustration... I used to get upset all the time at older drivers. But living in a major retirement city... I've learned to tolerate them. We'll all be there one day... adam
