Road/Show: IIHS reignites the ‘Speed Kills’ debate with a new speed limits study

The argument over speed limits is one that’s been raging for over a century, and it seems as though it will keep raging as long as people drive cars.

Those who are opposed to speed limits (or at least low ones) argue that speed doesn’t kill. They’ll say that speed limits are imposed mainly to generate revenue for municipalities and that most people can handle going as fast as their car will let them.
