By Harrison Weber DES MOINES - ODP A) -State Representative Edgar Holden is not completely convinced lowering the speed limit nationwide to 55 is the chief reason for the big drop in fatalities. He notes some of the states having the largest percentage decrease rn traffic deaths are Eastern states that had a rela tively low speed limit before the 55 mph limit was imposed last March I. The Republican floor leader singled out Rhode Island, Connecticut and Delaware as examples of states that had limits of 60 mph or in the case of Connecticut, reasonable and proper. Yet. these states, he said, are among the leaders in reducing traffic deaths. Holden has written to safety officials in each of these states, plus others, in an effort to determine how many of their traffic deaths occurred on the interstate system as opposed to the primary. Rep. Holden, a Davenport business man. believes the reduction in traffic deaths started last fall but he can’t put his finger on the reason Nationwide, for the first six months of the year traffic deaths were down 6,(HHI over the same period last year. In Iowa, through Aug. 8, traffic deaths were down 126 over the same date a year ago, 350 compared to 476 Interestingly enough, the death toll on the interstate system in Iowa through July 31 was down by four, from 20 to 16 deaths. State Safety Commissioner Charles l^arson believes it’s a “safe assumption" the big reason for the reduction in traffic deaths is the lower speed limit on the two-lane primary road system. Larson said his department is doing a study on this now. Another factor has to he reduced travel, down seven percent over a year ago The 55 mph speed limit restriction is set to expire next June 30. Before the 55 mph limit was imposed, the daytime maximum on the interstate in Iowa was 75. On primary highways the limit was 70 in most instances.
