'We first investigated this topic at the urging of the National Motorists Association, a “member-supported driver advocacy organization” that has made raising speed limits to the 85th percentile one focus of its efforts.'

Hmm. Whereas European research seems to indicate that any increase in speed limit leads to an increased death toll. Must be two very different sets of driving conditions in operation.
