It's not over, yet. Maybe highway _accidents_ are up, but the number of
_deaths_ went down...  Under pressure from safety lobbyists, some
legislators are contemplating a speed limit idea, but Montana residents
are opposing the speed limit 2:1. They have threatened to vote out any
legislator who proposes a speed limit and to increase the frequency of
legistative meetings from every 2 to every 3 years. The next legislation
is meeting in January 1997..
