Default OT 55 MPH Speed Limit A solution?

I'd rather see some kind of if you can drive this fast and still get 30
MPG and traffic permitting, you can drive 65 or 70.

I'd rather see a president say "Do the math, people. For a 1/2 hour trip, do
you really need to get there a minute sooner? Try keeping it under 2000 RPMs
for a few weeks & see if your wallet likes the results. But don't do this
coming off a red light if it means jamming up 8 cars behind you who can't
get through the light. Use your heads and your rear view mirrors."

We'll have to wait for a real president, I guess.

How about just multi;lying the speeding fines by two or four and
enforcing the ones we have now.

Most Toyotas get better mileage at 62 than 55. Sorry that someone else is
stuck with American shitcrap that can't get it up. . . .

All cars are the same, so it's pointless to experiment. Forget I mentioned
it.
