Deaths by Speeding on the Rise
A new report shows that a drop in enforcement, a rise in speed limits and public apathy are to blame.
By the way, one should check who is a member on that GHSA. ATS, NCSR (a ATS front group) and IIHS (IIHS was recently busted cooking the books on a RLC study last year by a USF report).
GHSA also last year "honored" a KNOWN camera company front group that sued to STOP a referendum BANNING RLC in one TX town! thenewspaper.com/news/36/3605.asp
Hey, Why don't you look a bit closer and you will find the GHSA is BLOATING THE NUMBERS!
If you pull out Ohio stats they ACTUALLY BREAK OUT HOW MANY CRASHES WERE CAUSED BY EXCEEDING THE SPEED LIMIT! ABOUT 1%
Ohio for 2008. publicsafety.ohio.gov/links/HSY7606-2008 pdf Table 2.08 on page 18 of the Adobe
Exceeded Speed Limit 10 Fatal 0.9 % of Fatal
Ohio for 2009. publicsafety.ohio.gov/links/2009CrashFacts pdf Table 2.08 on page 17 of the Adobe
Exceeded Speed Limit 11 Fatal 1.2 % of Fatal
Ohio for 2010 is similar: publicsafety.ohio.gov/links/2010CrashFacts pdf on page 17 of the Adobe.
Exceeded Speed Limit 12 Fatal 1.2 % of Fatal
GHSA SEEMS TO BE COOKING THE NUMBERS! (and this is just 1 state!)
(also see 1/3 lie on Association of Briitish Drivers site).
WHY THE DECEPTION GHSA???

The report seems forced to me... As if they were trying to prove something is true just by saying it, therefore it must be true. I also question the "data" that would have been used to get to their conclusion. I've seen enough police accident reports to know that "speeding" gets thrown in just because they can.
Aggressive driving on the other hand is a big problem. Lack of driving education? Lack of respect for others on the road? How to fix it.... ???
