Stephen Bank: Crazy speeds

Crazy speeds

Regarding the June 26 article “DOT told to study 75-mph speed limit”: I’ve been driving for almost 60 years, and I have covered over a couple of million miles. I am a good driver, but as I observe the many drivers in the area who run red lights, drive 15 miles over the speed limit, fail to signal lane changes or right or left turns, tailgate and text and use their phones while driving, I can’t help but feel that the legislators who wanted to lift the speed limit to 75 mph should be subject to psychiatric evaluations.
