And, please be very considerate of one of a person’s most    

precious, limited assets – their time     

 

Highway travelling conditions vary tremendously across the United States.  In many parts of the country, things are fairly close together – intercity distances are not too great, or there are extended stretches of urban/ semi-urban conditions.

But in other parts of the country – especially well west of the Mississippi – there are many miles of wide-open roads.  It can take many hours – or days to get to your destination out there.

One size definitely does not fit all when it comes to highway speed limits!  And, the genius of our federal system is that the several states can take a diversity of approaches to matters affecting them – so long as federal lawmakers remember and observe this key principle of our nation’s founding.

                  

 

 

Not only can there be a diversity of approaches to problems at a societal/ public level, but a multitude of ways of adapting to challenges is possible on an individual level, too.  But only so long as people aren’t all crammed together into a “one-size-fits-all” shoebox.

(But some of the most important individual adaptations couldn’t be illustrated – from the subtle changes of less-rapid acceleration, to the really invisible ones of forgoing trips entirely)

 

Please respect our national diversity, and don’t devalue our precious time!

Don’t impose another federally-mandated speed limit.
