    Driving slower reduces the amount of fuel consumed. Since driving is a privilege and not a right, I don't see a problem with this.

    Why are you whining?

    Also reduces the number of fatal accidents.

    Nice try, though. Feel free to come back and give it another shot when you have your facts straight.

    Does anyone actually drive 65 or slower on an open highway?

    Beetus,

    The move from 55 to 65 actually reduced fatal accidents per capita.

    The only winners under this plan would be state highway patrol officers.
