Recognizing our contribution to unhealthy air, water, neighborhoods, a sustainable future and world peace, we do hereby pledge to obey posted speed limits and never to exceed 55 MPH to conserve fuel, reduce pollution and make our lives safer. We urge our state & federal representatives to enact legislation to restore the 55 MPH maximum speed limit and mandate law enforcement agencies to enforce existing speed limits.

    • I gave up my car and walk most places. I am nearing 65. So I am slow. Slow is to savor and make things last.

    • 55 is definitely fastest I'd want to drive. Going over I begin to fee a bit out of control, and people even whiz past me when I'm going that fast! My car also feels best at 55. My MOTTO: If you are over age 55, don't drive your age unless 55, and if you are under age 55, be sure you drive under 55.

    • 55 doesn't save lives, fuel and certainly not money! This sham is no doubt perpetrated by the insurance lobby as a way to increase profits by raising premiums when tickets are issued for "speeding". My vehicle's mileage is actually worse slothing along at 55-60 than at 75-80. If you people feel the need to drive 55 on the Interstates, then by all means do so, but stay in the far right lane and out of my way! I for one don't want any more government intrusion into my life than there already is!

    • When I drive 55 instead of 65 in my hybrid, I increase my fuel economy by over 17\% to around 58MPG!

    • I was just looking at some of the comments on here. The last one for example - is info straight out of the 70's regarding emissions and fuel consumption. No offense, but y'all are probably the type who cruise at exactly (or 5 over) the speed limit in the left lane, with the touted argument "I'm going the speed limit, I don't have to move over!" Prehaps you all need to go look at http://www.motorists.org - "55 saves lives/fuel" is outdated propaganda of the past, used to support an agenda involving using speed limits and traffic fines to generate large amounts of revenue. The aformentioned URL discloses this agenda in detail. The original 55 destroyed lane courtesy in the US (left lane argument again - yes you do have to move over, whether you're going the speed limit or not. the US is the one of the, if not the only developed country in the world where you will not be ticketed for hogging the left lane.)

    • I have been a devoted slowpoke for years now. The benefits are vast, e.g. I average 44% better MPG than my EPA estimate, I've saved 5000+ lbs of CO2 emissions over two years (the average tree sequesters 50 lbs/year, so that = 100 trees' annual contribution)...

    • I wish I could do this without it counting as a signature, because I am not in support of the 55 hell hole returning to continue its damage to our highway system. The biggest safety and fuel consumption problem I see on American highways today is the SPORT-UTILITY VEHICLE. These ridiculously oversized vehicles not only consume fuel like it's thin air, but are extremely unsafe, not only due to their signifigantly higher COG(Center Of Gravity), but also due to their signifigantly higher bumper positions. Even the new lowered SUV bumpers are too high still. Folks, we don't need another 55. We need to send our SUV's to the scrap heap and get back into cars and minivans(which are just as versatle, if not more versatle, than most SUVs). Suburbans have their place, but the versatility of all these smaller SUVs that only seat 6, 7, or 8 can usually be beaten by the much safer and more fuel efficient minivan. I hope I don't come across as rude or flagarant, but I feel we're trying to solve the wrong problem.
