According to Todd Stone, B.C.'s minister of transportation and infrastructure: " This review is not about increasing speed limits. It's about ensuring that we have the right speed limits Stone went on to state that research relating to highway speeds supports the proposition that if highway speeds are pegged at the right level motorist will adhere to them. In this regard, Stone indicated: " If you're not keeping up with the flow or driving beyond, you pose a greater risk to yourselves and others." What are your thoughts on this issue? If you have any nows the time of make them know. Jeff Witten
