§MontanaÕs speed limit reinstatement in the summer of 1999
had no factual foundation whatsoever from
an engineering perspective; despite the
many studies undertaken by the Montana Office of Traffic Safety that unsuccessfully attempted to
attribute higher speeds with higher incident rates;
fatal and multiple vehicle accidents
were at an all time modern low.
§Remarkable anecdote: In the 6 years of working with the Montana DOT gathering this data, there was always the big
paradox – not one fatality was
brought to our attention that was attributed to no daytime speed limits!
