I think we can all agree that there is no need to study the traffic problems on U.S. 278.
What we need is more enforcement of the speed limits. Seeing a Sheriff's Office patrol car on the highway is indeed a rare occurrence. And those who drive 10, 15, 20 miles per hour over the speed limit know it.
The sad fact is that drivers who speed will save about three minutes at most on their travel time. Is it worth the risk to the drivers and those traveling around them? Of course not.
One of the draws for NASCAR is the crashes. But NASCAR has worked hard (finally) to ensure drivers walk away from these wrecks.
Walking away is something that is happening too infrequently on U.S. 278.
