Lower speed limit is outdated thinking

Just because Rep. Paul Tittl isn't the most articulate proponent of a 70 mph speed limit doesn't mean he's not doing the peoples' bidding.

By coming out against the speed change, the editorial board chooses to remain in the past. In this modern era, the cars are better, the roads are better, and I'm sure there are plenty of studies which would indicate which roads could easily handle higher speeds. You have torpedoed your own stance on the subject by pointing out that Wisconsin is the only state between Pennsylvania and Oregon without at least a 70 limit. This is an argument for, not against, a higher limit. What do they know that we don't?

Safety? Again, find the roads that can handle higher speeds. Locally, the newer highways 29 and 43 are super candidates. Let's get with the program and join the 21st century.
