    If you think "well within speed limits" and "safe" are one and the same,
you're sorely mistaken.  What a lot of politicians and public safety officials
are finally waking up to is that the problem isn't the 99 cars going in the
same direction at 80mph.  It's the idiot out in the left lane doing 65mph
"because it's the speed limit" and obstructing the other vehicles.

    Speed is not nearly as dangerous as the *difference of speed*.
