The Speed Kills Myth is Busted in this 15 minute video

We hear police and various “experts” telling us all the time that speeding kills. “Speed kills,” is the mantra given from the day you enter Driver’s Education to the point they take your license away because you’re now too old to drive. “Speed kills,” they claim, displaying graphic after graphic showing deadly motoring accidents involving sports cars and motorcycles.

Yet the only evidence of speed limits and highway death rates are not correlative. Raising highway speed limits does not directly cause more wrecks or deaths. According to this video, speed only kills your pocketbook.  Especially when those limits are largely arbitrary or based on old paradigms now far outdated thanks to better road building and modern cars.
