I have read today that they are raising the speed limit in Kentucky to 70mph. I guess I feel sorry for the ones that say there goes a grandpa driver or a grandma because what I am saying why raise it again? I personally thought 65 was fast enough let me know what you think and why they should or should not have raised it????

I agree that 65 miles per hour is going at a high rate of speed in itself. Over here in Indiana, it has been raised to 70 miles per hour for a while now. There really isn't that much difference once you start driving the new speed limit. We have alot of straight expressways in the area that I live in and there isn't congested traffic either. Once you get close to Louisville, Kentucky, the speed drops down to 55 miles per hour. That is where alot of congested traffic is mostly. I don't think the congested areas or the highly travelled areas should have the 70 mile per hour speed limit.

With the cars they are building nowadays, that is not really so terribly fast. Where I live speeds have been up at 100-110 kph for some time now. 80 kphs is 50 miles per hours. Cars are very safe and really it is not so much the speed that kills as poor driving habits. If you drive 60 miles an hour or 70 miles an hour is not really the determining factor when it comes to accidents.
