Using the same time for P&R and the same Deceleration Factor.....it would take 571.10 feet to stop from 90 MPH and 263.45 feet to stop from 55 MPH.....about twice as much
You point is a valid one....it takes a much longer time and distance to stop the faster you go.
I'm sure your imperical data is more accurate, I was using some basic physics. You know, X=Xo+1/2at^2 and V=Vo+at.
Bottom line, Slow Down!!
