New Jersey Turnpike Authority attorney John Sheridan said turnpike officials support the bills, but want to ensure that the state would be able to decrease speed limits for safety in the event of extreme weather or congested traffic. Mikulak said he had no problem with that revision. Catania said raising the speed limit was long overdue because "studies have proven that an increased speed limit will not increase accidents." He cited a 1992 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report comparing fatal accident rates in some of the other 41 states that have adopted 65-mph limits. The increased speed limits would be established on uncongested parts of divided state highways that Mikulak said "were designed for speeds of 80 miles per hour." Mikulak said three-quarters of motorists now exceed the 55-mph limit on New Jersey's highways. Yet Ocean County Assistant Prosecutor Steven M. Janosko predicted more accidents would result. "Speed is undoubtedly a cause in a significant amount of accidents," said Janosko, who also heads the fatal accident unit. "If the speed limit was increased to 65 miles per hour, people would drive 75." Stephen G. Carrellas, coordinator for the New Jersey chapter of the National Motorists Association, said in creasing speed limits would allow more cars to use roads, and reduce fuel use and air pollution. But state police, who issued 112,000 summons for speeding last year, said they would not support the higher speed limit. "The state" police believe that increasing the maximum allowable speed limit will have a serious effect on the motoring public," said spokesman John Hagerty. "This effect will be measurable in term of additional accidents, fatalities and injuries." Press staff writer Art Weissman contributed to this story. AS GA5V AS 123 II PtrGaw mJ tCSJ ' wiBJIiTD w "s. I I FWffly 11 : - V"1 II NO PAYMENTS A " NO DOWN -M VI 7 I W yA WEAR-DTED kA Convicted killer may escape from death sentence THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ROANOKE, Va. A man who escaped in the , nation's largest death-row breakout was happy to learn yesterday that a judge overturned his capital murder conviction, though he realizes "a lot of twists and turns" remain. Mark Miner, spokesman for Attorney General Jim Gilmore, said yesterday that Lem D. Tuggle "will stay behind bars until we have made our appeal known." U.S. District Judge James Turk ruled Wednesday that Tuggle must be freed or retried within six months because his constitutional rights were violated repeatedly during his trial. Tuggle, 42, was sentenced to death in January 1984 for the rape and capital murder of 52-year-old Jessie G. Havens. He was one of six death-row inmates who escaped from the Mecklenburg Correctional Center on May 31, 1984. All were recaptured within a month. The five others who escaped with Tuggle have been executed. It remains the largest death-row escape in U.S. history. ' Attorney Tim Caine said he told Tuggle to anticipate an appeal and that the best conclusion he could expect is a new trial. He said Tuggle "recognized, too, that the appeal is likely and this is not the last step or a big victory. You just go to the next level. These cases have a lot of twists and turns to them." Ms. Havens' son, Roger, said he was dismayed at the prospect of sitting through another trial. "I feel really shocked and amazed and hurt that we're going to have to put everybody through ' this mess again," Havens told WDBJ-TV. "I thought we pretty much had the biggest part behind us. I think the man got a fair trial." In order to convict Tuggle of capital murder, the prosecution had to prove the rape charge. Evidence was insufficient to convict Tuggle of rape, the judge said, because no semen was found inside her body. Danny Lowe, the former Smyth County commonwealth's attorney who prosecuted Tuggle, said "a horrible conclusion can be drawn" from Turk's ruling. "What this is saying is, you could never prove rape when there is no semen and a man kills his victim. He's getting the benefit out of killing his victim." But Turk also said Tuggle's rights were violated because the Smyth County court failed to appoint an independent psychiatrist and pathologist for his defense. Department of Corrections spokesman Ben Hawkins said he did not know whether Tuggle will remain on death row and was unable to get the answer from agency directors yesterday. Five months before Ms. Havens' murder, Tuggle had been paroled on a 1972 second-degree murder conviction. After the record-setting escape attempt, he tried unsuccessfully to escape again in 1985 and 1987. No escape charges were ever brought against him. . I CHANGE VOW IIHID 'iflPJt' '' .
