Argonne69 replied to Yasmeen's discussion Scooters: What Does This Mean for People That Ride Bikes?
"Driving at the 85th percentile is prudent and safe, not careless. Driving at the under-posted speed limit when the vast majority of traffic is traveling faster than you is dangerous. I drive the area expressways during off-peak times frequently, and…"

"Huh? The fatality rate went down in 2014. If higher speed limits lead to more fatalities, how could the rate decrease in the year after the speed limits were raised? Besides, the rates quoted are for the entire country. You have any evidence that…"

"And how many fatalities do you think occurred on Lake Shore Drive? I imagine it's very few relative to the number of miles driven on the drive. How many of those were due to excessive speed, and not simply carelessness or distraction? The city…"

Argonne69 replied to Yasmeen's discussion Scooters: What Does This Mean for People That Ride Bikes?
"Seriously? The insurance industry makes money by charging higher rates for "speeders". When limits are set too low, compliance is abysmal. Yes, the rates from 2014 to 2017 went up. They also went down in 2013 and 2014 before heading back…"

"Don't know why the site won't let me edit my responses. Notice that the IIHS always uses body counts, and not rates. That's the #1 way to tell that someone is lying with statistics. Did the fatalities increase? I don't doubt it.…"

"Lol. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. That's like asking the liquor industry about problem drinking. The auto fatality rate dropped for years after the dreaded double nickel was eliminated. The NMSL was finally eliminated in 1995.…"
