Speed kills.

Analysis of road fatalities in the USA provides yet more evidence that speed kills. Federal speed limit controls were altered in 1987 and again in 1995, allowing individual states to set their own limits. All states raised their limits, but at different times and to different extents. Overall, there has been a 3% increase in fatalities since 1995, with the largest increases in those states and on those roads where speed limits were raised most.
