I fail to see how driving faster is saving the average person money. When I am driving I am not working therefore I am not making any money. I am, however, spending money on fuel. If i show up to work early i do not get paid more since i am paid a salary. If I choose to drive 60mph I can get approx. 61mpg. If I drive 75mph I may only get 50mpg and I only save 10minutes over my 49mile one way commute. I never understood the whole "my time is worth $$" when you are not actually acrueing hours in your profession. If your earnings are limited by the hours in a day then speeding may make sense but not many professions have this problem.
