Oh, my...I don't know how to respond to that. 'The speeed of the car caused the accident'? No it didn't. The damn pedestrian stepped out into traffic and got creamed. You do something stupid, it's gonna hurt. But it was your choice. No-one put a gun to your head. No-one was holding your mother hostage. YOU stepped into traffic, and paid the consequences.

I understand that reducing the speed limit might reduce the number of injuries. But I simply don't see how forcing a law on a group of people that are doing NOTHING WRONG to protect a group of people who are BEING STUPID is right.

Re-engineer to your heart's content. But dropping the speed limit to 30 will empty downtown of everyone in a hurry.
