WLOX Editorial: Drive the speed limit

In these days of instant food, high speed Internet, constant phone contact and instantaneous money transfers, we seem to be generally dissatisfied with anything that does not move at the speed of light. While that is great for many parts of our lives, we have to set limits on some things in certain places. And driving is one of them.

High speed Internet downloads might crash your computer, but that does not put you in the hospital or even the morgue like a high speed auto crash can. This is one area of your life that we urge you to slow down, for your sake, for the sake of a highway worker and the sake of everyone else on the road.

If your reason for speeding is to avoid being late; change your schedule, leave early, drive the speed limit and arrive safe.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
