Here is one state in the USA who actually gets it. One state that uses reasoning, not faulty logic, politics or knee-jerking to come to the right conclusion. The state? Utah. The conclusion? Lowering speeds on motorways and highways causes more accidents.

Utah Speed Limit 80 MPH

Therefore, Utah have raised the speed limits on various roads to 80 mph (130 kph, which is what it is in France and many other European countries)! A real study conducted by real scientists has concluded that 80 mph is the optimal speed for cars and motorcycles, allowing them to remain alert and focussed while minimizing accidents.

Thankfully some people get it. Low speeds kill more people. Riding at 55 mph will cause you to lose focus and concentration. You fall asleep, but at 80 mph, your adrenaline will keep you focussed. And if something goes wrong, you can reasonably well recover at 80 mph, so it's not that fast that any problem is lethal.

Good choice Utah.
