Zip McKinney from New Madrid, Missouri:
"Regarding the Senate's proposal to drop the speed limit to 55 miles per hour...if we want to drive 70 on the interstates, so be it...they tell us too much to do, wear your seat belt, drive the speed limit, keep kids in car seats, do this and don't do that. Come on, let freedom ring."
Dixie Magner from Dexter, Missouri:
"If you have traveled the highways you know that people don't pay attention to the posted speed limits now. Plus, it would cost more to change the speed limits such as signage and the (expense) of workers to change them."
Jack Deckerd from Perryville, Missouri:
"People driving off without paying for gas is becoming more common as prices rise. Many stations are making customers prepay. In Fredericktown, there is a station that has attendants who pump for you and their prices are the lowest in town. Since their prices are usually three to five cents lower that the rest of the stations (the owner) gets the extra pennies. (An attendant) law would prevent drive-offs and put people to work which would create more money going into the tax base and help the economy."
Darryl Spurlock from Jackson, Missouri:
"(Regarding not running car air conditioners to save fuel). Driving your vehicle with your windows down uses more gas than your air conditioner...(it) creates a drag on your vehicle from the wind causing your car to work harder thus using more fuel. Me? I'm staying cool."
