determined 1,880 more people died between 1996 and 1999 in the 22 states with higher speed limits.

Four years... times 22 states... 1880 divided by 88... that's 22.3636 more per state per year... less than two more deaths per month per state... less than one ACCIDENTAL death every two weeks. THIS is the minutiae that they are arguing about? They'll curtail freedom further for 0.43 ACCIDENTAL deaths per week for an entire state?!?

So when do they start blotting out the sun for all of those unintended skin cancer deaths?

The New Zealand government agency estimated the death rate for the 22 states that raised their speed limits on rural interstates in 1995 and 1996.

It's that one underlined word that bothers me.
