Sen. John Warner, R-Virginia, suggests in this Time magazine story that it's time to reimpose the 55-mph speed limit. I lived with that limit for 20 years. It was a pain. Probably it saved gas, but it also wasted a lot of time--at least, inasmuch as anyone obeyed it, which they did only partially. They drove slower than they would have, but they mostly drove faster than 55.
