There is no such requirement any more. That's the only requirement there ever was regarding 55-mph. That was not a federal "law," it was purely a(nother) case of the outright blackmail (greymail?) of the states by the federal government. We're free of that now, and we set the limits where we want. --Eoin Addressable as Bullwinkle in the commercial domain of mostlysunny
