The Best Highway Safety Practices Institute Rejects Clarion Calls for Failed Policy II: National 55 mph Speed Limit

PORTLAND, Ore., July 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Reenacting the failed

improve roadway safety. The future is in educating motorists to drive safely
via safety campaigns that promote keep right except to pass, yielding,

jobs, reduce our carbon footprint, pollution, and improve the safety and
efficiency of our infrastructure.
