Low speed limit on Lahaina bypass unreasonable

The new Lahaina bypass is indeed worthwhile but, good grief, why is the speed limit 30 mph? The speed limit on the road we are bypassing is 35 and 45 mph.

Don’t tell the police but when I was traveling at 55 mph most of the cars were passing me.

Come on, state Department of Transportation, let’s change the limit to equal what is safe and reasonable.
