I think it went up to 75MPH. I don't think it is a good idea. People will now push the envelope and go 80 - 85. It only saves you a few minutes, cost more in gas and in lives. Bad idea in my opinion.
I agree. I believe it's a mistake on several levels, and I like to drive fast. Trouble is there are other vehicles on the road.
It might be a ruse to increase gas tax revenue or bending to the truck lobby.
I 35 between San Antonio and Dallas will be nutso (actually more nutso).
