Remove speed limit ban on Pokestops in Pokemon Go!

To whom it may concern:

I am an avid player of Pokemon Go and have been since its release.  I've invested a lot of time and money into a game that I thoroughly enjoy and play daily.  Along the way there have been several updates and while most have been good, some have been been not so great.  In fact, some have downright awful.  I've gotten over my frustration in most cases, but this latest one is by far the most infuriating.

The speed limit caps on Pokestops is completely absurd.  While I understand your idea for driver safety, what about others who are passengers?  Or others that unable to get out walk to the Pokestops in their area?  Is this a money grab for people to buy more balls?  Does your data show an abnormally high accident rate while players are playing Pokemon Go?  It was enough you took away the ability to catch while going over 25mph, but now this?  It is completely inane.

From reddit boards to Facebook, this is the one that is hitting home.  Please do not ruin a game that millions love to play.  As I said earlier, I've spent a lot of time and money in this game and I know for a fact that I am not the only one.  This is not the product we all invested in.  Please correct this and do not punish all players because of a select few.  You did an excellent job bringing people back with the Halloween event, only to kill it off with this?

Take this opportunity to listen to the loyal players.  We want to play.  We want to spend money.  We want to catch them all.  Please don't make it any harder than it already is.  Please don't ruin our game.
