About The National Motorists Association

The National Motorists Association was founded in 1982. We began by combating the 55-mph National Maximum Speed Limit and we continue to support efforts to retain motorists' freedoms and rights. We support traffic laws based on sound engineering principles and public consensus -- not political agendas.

The NMA is a grassroots organization that is entirely supported through the contributions of individuals, families, and small businesses.
