I was even able to see it on Linux. Just make sure your Flash Player is working.

It's a vivid demonstration of what happens when you drive the speed limit.

And I want to organize thousands more such demonstrations.

Assholes, yes, but they're proving a point that 55mph is too slow of a speed limit.  Hopefully the government will respond and raise the speed limit (or... could it be, even get rid of it?)

Raise the speed limit? Get rid of the speed limit? Then everybody will be going hundreds of miles an hour, and crash and die, and there will be huge explosions everywhere, and complete chaos on the roads! We should LOWER the speed limit, then everybody will go nice and slow, and not crash or anything. Ever.

No.  They eliminated the speed limit on the interstates in MT and almost nothing bad happened.  Of course, some losers and a bunch of cops complained and now it is back.  But MT proved that at least in a rural mountainous state, you don't need an interstate speed limit.

Have you heard of the Autobahn?  Liberal speed limits. Lots of high end german engineered cars. Driving rediculous speeds.

from: http://gettingaroundgermany.home.att.net/autobahn.htm#speedlimits

Accident rates
Despite the general high speeds, the accident, injury, and death rates on the Autobahn are remarkably low.  The Autobahn carries about a third of all Germany's traffic, but injury accidents on the Autobahn account for only 6% of such accidents nationwide and less than 12% of all traffic fatalities were the result of Autobahn crashes (2004).  In fact, the annual fatality rate (3.2 per billion km in 2004) is consistently lower than that of most other superhighway systems, including the US Interstates (5.0 in 2003).

It's a thing of beauty.  Too bad the cops weren't around.
