Traffic regulations, especially speed limits seem outdated. Drivers ignore posted limits in favor of their personal judgment. New ideas?
Drivers no longer see posted limits as a regulation pertaining to them. Vehicles are easier to operate at faster speeds and roads are constructed for higher speeds. It can't just be people in a hurry - most simply ignore the consequences (speeding tickets, accidents, etc). that dramatically driving over the posted limit might bring. Do we need to raise the limits or can we find a new way to communicate to these drivers?
