This all goes back to a comment that STEADI (Eric) made concerning
It's not so bad to be going 80 if most of the other cars are going
between 78-82, but if you run across that one old bozo that's going 52,
there's gonna be problems.
On the other hand, if you run off the road (you shouldn't) and hit a
bridge support at 80, it's gonna hurt worse than if you were going 52.
Kinda like a give and take thing.
If more drivers were better drivers not drinking coffee, talking on the
phone, reading a map, reading the paper, listening to the radio at mega
volume, and trying to see who that hot man/woman is in the other lane, it
would work. If everyone else stays stupid, it could hurt.
