Back to 55 MPH?

The U.S. Congress is mulling over bringing back the Federally mandated 55 mph. What do you think about this?

The speed limit on Interstates is 75 mph here in CO. Most western states have 75 mph speed limits. Also, if you drive 75 mph here, you damn near get run over!

If more people drove a Focus, we would not have to worry about trying to save gas. I agree with Sammy Hagar....!

^^^^^^ Awsome point Klondike. There are millions of signs out there that would have to be changed. If people want to drive 55 just stay in the right lane (slow lane). The oil is out there we just need to start drilling.
