It’s Not the Speed….

…it’s the stupidity.

WMUR: House considering raising speed limit in parts of NH.

CONCORD, N.H. — If some lawmakers have their way, drivers will be able to go 70 miles per hour on a stretch of Interstate 93 north of Concord, N.H.

The House votes Wednesday on a bill to raise the limit from 65 mph to 70 mph from Exit 18 to the Vermont border. The current speed limit would remain the same through Franconia Notch.

Sounds fine to me.

I’d rather be surrounded by safe, responsible drivers doing 85 mph than a bunch of road raging maniacs, drunk drivers, and texting teenagers swerving all over the road at 65.

If (and that’s a BIG if) public safety is the main concern here, and not speeding ticket revenue, they’ll pass this bill and turn their focus to those individuals who are driving recklessly on the roads.
