What if Speed Limit Changed With Weather? An Open Letter to City of Grand Rapids

Dear citizens of Grand Rapids:

I have an awesome idea.

This morning, while driving through the ice and snow, I noticed that everyone was going at a different speed, trying to avoid running into each other or running themselves off the road. It was pure chaos.

Which led me to the thought: What if the speed limit changed depending on the weather?

For example, if the speed limit on the highway is usually 65 miles per hour (mph), the speed limit would lower to 40 mph (or even lower!) if there’s ice on the road or if there’s snow blowing around.

Of course, Curtis wants to get all “scientific” about it. He suggests getting a computer and figuring out an algorithm for just how low the speed limit would go. Not a bad idea.

So what do you think, Grand Rapids? Should we bring it to Mayor George Heartwell?
