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.

Don Dwyer Jr. to resign after his drunken-driving arrest Tuesday, but there is little in Maryland law to force that outcome, a review of the state's statutes on removal from office shows. Dwyer, a three-term Anne Arundel County Republican, was arrested early Tuesday after failing a field sobriety test along Route 100. The incident occurred almost exactly a year after he was involved in a boating accident that seriously injured six others. He had pleaded guilty to operating the boat while drunk.
