Insurance Groups Say Texas Proposal to Increase Speed Limit to 85 Will Lead to More Fatalities

Efforts by Texas lawmakers to increase the speed limit to 85 on the state's future highways is meeting with opposition from those who say the move will lead to more highway deaths. 

Insurance industry officials say any increase in speed, whether on an existing freeway or new one, could cause more accidents, resulting in more injuries and fatalities...

Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

I'm all for it.  I live in TX.  Some of those west Texas rural highways go to a vanishing point in the middle of the desert.
