Why 70 miles per hour is the new 55
from The Wall Street Journal
Left to their own devices, American drivers confronted with an open stretch of interstate highway tend to drive at about 70 miles per hour—whatever the legal speed limit happens to be.

This helps to explain why safety advocates and conservationists are losing the long-running debate over lowering freeway speed limits.
