Maybe, if it is significantly less than any year since. Anyone have that information for years since '64. And is there any direct or indirect information on how much the average speed drops on pave sections? Is there a direct correlation between average speed and pave length? Should be easy to figure out. If the information is out there, and someone can point me t o it, I'd be happy to crunch the numbers.
