"As...as" is idiomatic, so eliminate A, B, and C.

"They" = traffic safety officials or drivers? Can't tell, so eliminate D.

E for me too

A,B,C are out equally likely is improper usage here
now between D & E
A. equally likely to exceed the proposed speed
limit as
B. equally likely to exceed the proposed speed
limit as they are
C. equally likely that they will exceed the proposed
speed limit as
D. as likely that they will exceed the proposed
speed limit as the current one-> ugly usage
E. as likely to exceed the proposed speed limit
as they are. ->perfect
