A. equally likely to exceed the proposed speed
limit as -> eliminate

B. equally likely to exceed the proposed speed
limit as they are -> equally as is wrong usage

C. equally likely that they will exceed the proposed
speed limit as -> same as above

D. as likely that they will exceed the proposed
speed limit as -> drivers compared with curent speed limit !!! eliminate

E. as likely to exceed the proposed speed limit
as they are. -> ok But no completely alright

one flaw in E is : as they are current speed limit appears wrong changes meaning

Hence mddled but others are worse

A. equally likely to exceed the proposed speed limit as : Equally Likely is incorrect.
B. equally likely to exceed the proposed speed limit as they are : Equally Likely is incorrect.
C. equally likely that they will exceed the proposed speed limit as : Equally Likely is incorrect.
D. as likely that they will exceed the proposed speed limit as : It is incorrect because, 'they will' is not parallel to the part after second as. IT COULD BE RIGHT IF IT WERE ; as likely that they will exceed the proposed speed limit as that they will exceed the current one.
E. as likely to exceed the proposed speed limit as they are. - As likely X as Y (X and Y should be parallel), In this case, it is like this : as likely to exceed the proposed speed limit as they are (to exceed) - UNDERSTOOD (the current one)
