We can finally drive 70 MPH on I-75 & I-64!
496 signs will be changed today. I can remember back to the old days when it used to be 70. The speed limit was reduced to 65 to save lives (They said). One can only ponder if there have been too many lives saved at that speed and now it is prudent to raise it again to 70. Hmmmm...
I drive this road almost everyday and I know that most drivers have been driving along at 70 to 80 MPH for a long time. Now, I wonder how this will affect the speeders and the State Troopers. How much leeway will they give us?
Maybe it will be a good deal that I will be able to get to my destination a few minutes earlier. Eventually, I will figure out that I can leave the house a few minutes later and I won't be getting to my appointment with minutes to spare.
Yes, the old-timers can recall when the speed was 70 and it only seems like a blip in history for the amount of time it was 65. Those were the good old days... where life came at you fast...and now, will do so again!
