I don't think reducing drivers vision slows people down; well it doesn't
seem to when its very foggy on motorways.  

I don't think its a loosing argument.  There has been research showing how
trees can reduce domestic violence.( Sullivan + Kuo 1996. Do trees
strengthen Urban Communities, Reduce Domestic Violence? USDA Forestry Report
R8-FR 56.)
Maybe the calming effect of trees can make motorists less hyper.
