    Are Speed Limits on highways slowing down U.S Economy & increasing costs?

    On American highways, a suburban mom in a nissan crossover can drive at 40 mph on a 70 mph interstate and slow down trucks carrying essential cargo.
    She can also slow down lots of cars, ruining fuel economy, harming the environment.
    Other than that, slow drivers cause road rage and cause someone to overtake from right side causing accidents.


    I think we need to increase speed limits on highways or have minimum speeds...this will ensure more americans get comfortable driving at higher speeds.

    cruising at higher speed is better for fuel economy anyway rather than frequently having to slow down.

    this also ensures trucks & trailers can deliver cargo to states better & people can shave off their travel time.


    I also think the recent trend of crossovers has caused average speeds to drop in America because crossovers feel very unstable and suffer body roll at higher speeds causing drivers to go slow.

    short answer: no

    long answer: also no but with more words
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit softly.

    Short answer: no

    Long answer: nah

    Cars have a speed limit for a reason. Its due to physics. The faster a car goes, the more kinetic energy it develops, which can lead to catastrophic dangers.

    Semis have a speed limit due to its weight. They become like mini bombs if they reach a certain speed.

    So safety is taken into consideration here which slows down the speed at which people travels. Of course everyone wants to go faster.

    I think it's already illegal to drive too slow on the freeway. In California the speed limit is 65 but everyone drives about 80. But yeah they should make an American version of the German autobahn, but there's too many stupid people in America so it probably won't ever happen.

    of course they are. people who can't drive responsibly (probably aren't responsible in many other ways) should be taken off the road. as for everyone else, the government is slowing them down, literally stealing hours of people's lives for no reason.

    I just got a reckless driving ticket for going 80 in a 55, but the thing is, I was driving the same speed as everyone else, plus the cop says he clocked me going 65, but said that another cop saw me going 80. I'm definitely getting a lawyer to fight this.

    Anyways, yes, the speed limits are too low, and there is proof that speed limits cause more accidents than no speed limits. Montana used to not have speed limits, after they enacted speed limits people started having more accidents.

    We should start with a 20mph stimulus. You can go 20mph over any speed limit. So 70mph is 90mph. See how it works.

    It seems ridiculous how highway speed limits haven't changed in over half a century while car and brake performance has increased dramatically on average. Like the average economy car might as well be a race car compared to the average car of the 50's. These speed limits were put in place back when the average car hardly had 100hp and had awful drum brakes with a ridiculously long stopping distance, low-tech tires that barely worked and pretty much no safety tech to protect people. Cars these days practically drive themselves and are easily capable of driving a lot faster than the speed limit on highways without issue. Speed limits really need to be updated.

    Speed limits designed in the 1950s when the average car was a block of lead with **** brakes. Obviously need to be redone.
    But they are a money maker for the government, so theyll never be evaluated logically.

    There would likely still need to be a major improvement in driver training and licensing. Driver’s Ed in high schools has been **** for decades and there are more than enough drivers that are just so bad at the job that features like Tesla’s Autopilot and GM’s SuperCruise, even at their current stage of development, is safer than most of those drivers.

    This

    Its just an easy way to fill ticket quotas.

    A trooper can literally close his eyes and randomly pull anyone over because noone does 55 on a highway with a speed limit of 55. The main highway here is 55... Everyone goes 70+

    Speed limits are communist in nature and shouldn’t exist. I live in South Dakota however which means I can drive north of 100 mph everywhere I go without worry.

    Our speed limits and highway systems are designed for the retards in mind.. These people are and can be classified as retards by definition.

    It only takes one, to two or a small %age to ruin to for the rest of us.

    When they say all men are created equal, they have the retards and handicap in mind.

    I've been living in Germany for the past few months, the Autobahn is great because people also keep to the speed limit on the regulated parts. If there's a sign saying 100, people drive 100. Trucks aren't allowed to drive over the weekends and past 10 or 11 pm either IIRC.
