 Did the 65 mph Speed Limit Save Lives?
But enforcement and highways are integrated, interactive systems: extra policing resources used to reduce speeding must be diverted from other kinds of safety activities; drivers discouraged from using interstate highways may move to other, more dangerous roads.
We combined the states into two groups: a test group, the states that raised their speed limits; and a control group, the states that did not.
To test the robustness of these results, we performed a Chow test by removing seven representative states from the sample: the resulting regression estimates were statistically similar to those of the full sample.
