Question 1
Question 1 of 5
 

In 2011, the Ohio Turnpike raised its limit to 70 and recorded its lowest traffic fatality rate ever that year. The higher speed limit attracts travelers to use the safer, limited-access, divided highways of the interstates from more traditional roads. That makes both types of roads safer.


Why does increasing the speed limit on interstates make traditional roads safer?

More travelers choose to use interstates which reduces the number of cars on traditional roads
Drivers attracted by the high speed limits of the interstates are reckless and getting them off the traditional roads makes those roads safer
After this change there are more police patrolling traditional roads
After this change there are less police patrolling traditional roads
