Out on the speed­way

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Ap­par­ently 85 mph has be­come the new speed limit on In­ter­state 40. Where is the high­way pa­trol?

Last Satur­day after­noon, while driv­ing home from the Lit­tle Rock area, I dis­cov­ered you can’t prac­tice mod­er­a­tion while us­ing the left lane to pass a cou­ple of trucks. No … you re­ally need to gun it, or some over­sexed driver of a late-model SUV will be rid­ing your bumper. Seems you are im­ped­ing his right to drive 85.

The guys driv­ing the big pick­ups are even worse.

So if I need to pass the truck with­out do­ing 85, do I need to apol­o­gize to you?

I think I may have seen only two po­lice cruis­ers out there between Lit­tle Rock and Alma. I re­peat, where are the po­lice?
