Not just that bridge. Accidents and accident-related deaths on all roads and highways have a greatly increased chance of occurrence at high speeds.Not quite victimless considering the substantial uptick in deaths that have occurred on that bridge over the last couple years.
If you maintain your equipment, know how to drive, and are not impaired or distracted, traveling fast is really not that dangerous, assuming its not too fast for the road or weather conditions. Unfortunately, the laws have to be made to protect people from the idiots who often don’t do any of the above, of which there are many.Not just that bridge. Accidents and accident-related deaths on all roads and highways have a greatly increased chance of occurrence at high speeds.
doing some easy math, they figured it at less than 60mph. google says the bridge is 18.2 miles long.I'm definitely someone who exceeds the speed limit a lot of the time I'm driving, though not usually by more than 10 mph. However, if I get a ticket for it, I don't act like they shouldn't enforce the law or imply that it's a money grab. I'm betting that the 18 minute time span for getting ticketed calculates an average speed that exceeds the speed limit by more than 10 mph. If you're doing 90 on that bridge, or any highway, and regardless of the condition of your car and your excellent driving skills, you deserve a ticket.
