I have learned through the NMA that unless a speed limit has been established scientifically, that is, by doing a traffic survey and determining the 85th percentile and setting the speed at that, it is an illegal speed. Here in Oregon, every one of our speeds has been set by political whim. If and when I ever get a speeding ticket here, my defense will be that the speed is an illegal one according to the Federal Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices and I will ask for the prosecution to produce the traffic studies to show otherwise. Whenever that is brought up, the cases are always dismissed. Why? Because if they aren't, the decisions can be appealed all the way to the State Supreme Court and that could be the end to arbitrary and underposted speed limits. I leaned all that by being a member of the National Motorists Association.
