75 mph is reasonable. NC's fastest, safest, and most fuel-efficient roads carry long-distance travelers, truckers, and tourists-- they deserve a higher speed limit. Unreasonable is the DANGEROUS IGNORANCE about where fatal crashes occur, which is: intersections, sharp curves, and where opposing traffic is separated only by yellow paint stripes -- all problems "designed out" of interstates! North Carolina rural interstates account for less than 5% of state traffic deaths. The fatality rate of 1.07 on NC's rural interstates is FAR FAR LOWER than other rural roads' rates of up to 5.42 deaths per 100 million travel mile (latest federal Highway Statistics, Table FI-30).
