The reason for "speed limits"

Speed limits have got to be one of the silliest and most pointless expressions of the control-freak State.

Very few people drive dangerously fast. And those who do aren't slowed down by arbitrary speed limits.

Yet, speed limits are usually set just a hair below the speed everyone feels like driving. That's not for safety, since the speed limit could safely be set at the speed just about everyone drives anyway, but that would deprive the thieves of the State a revenue stream, and would give their highwaymen nothing to do.

Theft- that is really all there is to speed limits.
