SO, speed limit signs would read:
+25 next 15 miles
Something like this would allow folks who are serious about driving, responsible enough to know when and where to set a SAFE and Prudent LIMIT in certain areas out in the sticks. In busier area there would be adjusted limits as noted about. +15 +20 Etc... Could work...
Oh and Speeding shithead Soccer Moms in SUVs or anyone else speeding 10+ over in an SUV Get a double Fine and points. Dumbshits in the Escalades and Tahoes at 85 need to get a freaking clue as to the stopping distances and piss poor handling of their rolling Cliche's.
Special Licenses required for all Trucks and SUVs... Cut down on the stupid shit maybe.

True it would take some planning to make it work, and as others have mentioned so many of our highways are such complete garbage as to make triple digits hazardous all on their own.
