Raise Limit to 65 M.P.H.?

February 27, 1986

Raising the speed limit to 65 would be a terrible mistake!

The 55-limit:

--Saves lives.

--Reduces injuries.

--Reduces accidents.

--Lowers car insurance premiums.

The 55-limit takes less gas per mile and therefore causes less air pollution.

It is false to assume that law enforcement could be moved to urban areas. At a 65-m.p.h. legal "limit," many drivers would go to 74 m.p.h. That is hazardous.
