Congratulations to Howard County for trying to figure out sensible speed limits ( "Are Howard County's speed limits too low?" Aug. 5). While it's a shame that the company contracted to study the issue messed up, similar studies should be required throughout the Baltimore area. I'd also like to congratulate Maryland's law enforcement personnel. Many times a driver I know has driven 65 or 70 mph on Maryland 295, I-95, or Route 100, and he has never been bothered by police or state troopers.
