    The proposed increase was made possible when the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 1201, last year. The bill allows TxDOT to establish speeds of up to 85 mph on certain highways. The previous maximum speed limit in Texas was 80 mph.

    Texas Toll Road Could Have 85MPH Speed Limit « CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

    Remember when I was saying Republicans want to get rid of speed limits? How many called me a liar. Well, there's the first step.

    Next, get rid of those cumbersome and expensive safety regulations for cars. We need to elect plenty of Republicans. Abolish the EPA. Get rid of regulations on bankers and investors. Instead, limit how much people can sue. See, it's not getting rid of regulations, but shifting them to protect the truly deserving, like millionaires and billionaires.

    How do you go from high speed limits to no safety regulations to no regulations on bankers and investors?

    Wow, I'm surprised there are any Germans left on the planet because they go really fast on the autobahns. They must be crazy Republicans there.

    I think Texas just wants the illegals to be able to leave the state as fast as possible. Wasn't that the claim from the administration, that they were leaving in droves because of the bad economy? I suppose they've turned around and came back though, since the economy is so peachy these days.

    I think liberals like making so many laws to ensure that more people break them and have to pay fines. They need our money to redistribute for their assinine programs.

    Stossel did a show on the excessive laws. It's likely most of us have broken some stupid law and they are always making more, like NJ fining people up to $1,000 if their dog isn't wearing a seatbelt.

    You're right, buckeye, about liberals freaking out when people have freedoms. Can't control free people and that is bad for them.
