It's no time to increase speed limits
Placeholder Image

Dear Editor,
Anyone with any intelligence should know that raising the speed limit will only perpetuate the consumption of fuel. 
Most all new vehicles have a fuel mileage indicator and know that the faster they drive the more fuel the vehicle consumes. 
This is not a Republican vs. Democrat argument. Why in world are our legislators wasting their time and my time by passing legislation that will increase the speed limit? 
For once I would like to think that they would appeal to their common sense and spend their time on some other issue.  
If the “Boys of Topeka” want to do something to either bring down the cost of fuel or limit accidents, allow your vehicle to get better mileage “slow down the speed limit.”
