The highway is not deadly

Does nobody realize that it is not the Highway that kills but the people SPEEDING or driving impaired on said Highway.

The posted limit is somewhere between 90 and now 120. If you do 90 you get run over by almost everybody else on said highway because they are doing somewhere between 10 and 50 km faster than the posted! 

Nobody has taken into account that at higher speeds it takes shorter reaction times for things to go wrong. 

I find it hard to read Killer Highway when its not the highway but the idiots that drive the highway impaired or just refuse to slow down and pay attention!
