that is the difference between reality and theory. once a driver gets a ticket or three he will pay attention to the limit. I believe the study that you are reffering to was one done on several highways. they were designed for a vehicle doing 70 mph and even though the limit was 55 or 60 most drivers did 70. the tickets for doing 70 which is 10 or 15 over the limit simply do not get written very often so the limit gets ignored. Cootes drive at Mac has a limit of 50 and after writing a number of tickets the drivers have gotten the message. sure there is some speeding but not a lot and the decline in the tickets written when the cops set up shop testifies to that. an 80 or 90 in a 50 is a chunk o change and gets drivers attention.
