Wow, looks like they raised lots of stretches to much more reasonable speeds. Will be nice if I ever make it up north. Too bad Oregon has no chance of doing that anytime soon, although I'd have never guessed BC would do that either.

I wonder if it's in response to the public outcry that came up after the "Speed Kills Your Pocketbook" video went viral.
