"Maryland drivers are clocking increasingly higher speeds... The numbers reflect a national trend, say highway safety experts, who point to ever-increasing horsepower in vehicles, an increasingly rushed society and a popular tolerance for speeding as factors in the higher speeds.And the higher speeds, they say, are contributing to more deaths...Highway safety groups urge tougher enforcement [and] also suggest reducing existing speed limits. [Others] say speed limits must reflect reality. They say the answer may be to raise the posted limit on a few roads where drivers are already far exceeding it, and then vigorously enforce the higher limit.
