Editorial: Weigh raising speed limit

(Continued)

We wouldn't recommend that extreme an action, particularly in a densely populated state such as New York, but we are wondering why the state has not at least considering raising the speed limit on some highways, especially Interstate 87 and the Thruway.

Those who continue to argue that safety is compromised by raising speed limits now face evidence to the contrary.

For the sake of safety and convenience for travelers who value the destination more than the journey, state legislators need to take up the issue of the 65 mph speed limit on superhighways.
