I Can't Drive 55

Courtesy of the History Channel: On this day (1/1) in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon signs the Emergency Highway Energy Conservation Act, setting a new national maximum speed limit. On a round trip from St. Louis area to Pittsburgh, I can save close to 3.5 hours of windshield time by driving 65 rather than 55.....
