Anyone who has spent any time at all traveling along out nation's freeways regularly sees the remains of blown-out truck tires lying on the shoulder. It's the sign of a safety issue that very few highway safety officials or state regulators even know about.
Those of a certain age may remember the oil crises of the 1970s that led to a federal speed limit of 55 miles-per-hour. It wasn't especially popular with motorists or the trucking industry. Nonetheless, it saved lives as well as petroleum resources.
