Brandon, speeds of 130 on 400 series highways are actually what they're engineered for. Posted speeds are always always always lower. It's not a good idea to bring up speed limits on highways though because you open a can of worms (i.e. autobahns in Europe).

Also, IMHO the percentage of idiotic drivers is increasing drastically especially as the plethora of unproven driver's ed instructors "educate" new drivers. When I got my license there were 2 or 3 companies to choose from and all had reputations. Now you can just walk around the corner to talk to the nearest guy with a sign on his car... It's ridiculous.

I think that lowering speed limits is only part of a solution because if you don't make people want to slow down, they'll just double up on the speed. I'm all for bringing back photoradar with speed limits set at 40 and the radar set for 55. Anything 15 or over is ticket for sure. Have the real police concentrate on bad drivers.
