Strict enforcement should abound, be it photo cops, pursuit cops or (dare I say it) mandatory governors on all vehicles. Maybe each car should have an emergency mode which would allow you to break the speed limit in times of... well... emergency. But if you don't file legitimate emergency paperwork afterward, you get a ticket.

I was thinking on the 4-lane 710 South today that I wouldn't mind 65-60-55-50 speed limits from fast to slow lane. A place for everyone. That's one of the common sense definitions anyway (pass on the left), yes? On the 2 lane freeways, 65-55 speed limits. If it was made law in that manner, then maybe this argument would become moot.
