    ...because I'm not sure they ever really slowed down.

    More to the point, the speed limits were raised only on non-urban freeways and large rural freeway-graded four-lanes--and very often it was raised back up only to 65.  Before 1973, the maximum speed limit on any road not a freeway in Georgia (my home state) was 60, and I think that was true nationwide.  Once that was cut back to 55, it never went back up, except again for some big rural four-lanes, which went up to 65.

    The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early....Well, what are we waiting for? There's no deadline on a dream!
