Letter: Don’t raise speed limits
Re “Sanborn, a secret taxer” (Monitor letter, March 14):
Drivers add on another 10 mph to the speed limit when in a hurry. Troopers seem to allow it. That means putting the limit at 70 mph on our interstates allows speeds easily reaching 80 mph. With the number of people either texting while driving or making cell phone calls, that portends a tragic change. I hope our senators will keep the limit at 65 or reduce it. Lowered speed means less gasoline used – an economical and an environmental savings – and possibly more safety.
