Here is my 2 penny's

I don't agree that 5-10 is right... its horribly wrong.

However, im all for stiffer penalties is an accident happens.

I've done my fare share of speeding, both car and bike. I've got not one ticket on my bike however. I payed to play and I was deserving of the fine each time. Making a law like this just because some douche got scared when he saw a few bikes go to one wheel mode is ridamndiculous.

Im all for higher speedlimits. Im all against 5-10 if you do 30 over. Im all for getting the book thrown at you if you wreck, even if its a single vehicle accident. Im all for you going to prison for a long time if you injure someone while driving recklessly.

+1 - think of how many drivers within the Houston 610 loop could be busted.

I totally agree with this too. I mean lets face it if no wreck happens it is a VICTOMless crime. Why should the penalties be so severe. It is a ridiculous law. PERIOD.

What I was referring to was when the EPA said that we needed to set our speed limits at 55 on the highways for emissions purposes because of blah blah blah THE WORLD IS GOING TO EXPLODE!

It wasn't the EPA saying the we need to slow to 55 for emissions purposes it was THE PRESIDENT saying we need to slow to conserve gasoline consumption during the oil crisis of the mid-70's.

Other than that you had it right.

If you are doing 70 and someone is going 35 mph faster than you they are going almost 50 percent faster than you and others - that is inherently dangerous.

Glad to see they applied it to all vehicles.

true... but only to people with thier heads up their a$$es. pay attention to what you are doing and what is going on around you. Drive at a speed that is reasonable for the conditions.... 70 mph is safe on an overcast dry day... so why can't 80-85 be safe on a bright sunny day on the same 4 lane divided highway?

It's not neccessarily safe if the rest of traffic is doing 60-65 mph however.

80-85 is not safe and reasonable, given her circumstances... she is distracted.

true, but if the cars are spread very thin... or if traffic is doing 90, then i should be able to do 90 without getting a ticket.... after all, that would be more safe than doing 70 when other traffic is doing 90
