If it's Christmas - oops, we mean 'the holiday season' - there must be a Grinch, right? Well, today's green-skinned anti-Santa is the U.S. Governor's Highway Safety Association (GHSA), who think we should just. Slow. Down.
On the 10th anniversary of the repeal of the U.S. National Maximum Speed Limit, the GHSA have released some holiday reading, "Survey of the States: Speeding."

While saying that higher speed limits lead to more traffic deaths, the report doesn't call for lower speed limits - just lower speeds. It seems the GHSA 'discovered' that there's a tacit agreement between drivers and law enforcement that it's OK to drive about 5 to 10 mph over the posted limit. (None of us do that, of course. No, sir.)

The GHSA calls for a "coordinated enforcement and public education effort between the national, state and local governments" to persuade us to stay below the limit.

You can find the report here.
