Texas Highway With Highest Speed Limit in The Country is Now Open
Tired of getting speeding tickets in New Jersey for doing 79 mph in a 65 mph zone? If it means that much to you, quit your job, pack your bags and head on down to Eastern Texas where a new privately funded highway was just built with the highest speed limit in the country. Just how fast are we talking? 85 mph.
According to CSMonitor.com,
The toll road is intended to help alleviate the increasingly crowded Interstate 35 corridor between Austin and San Antonio, two of the state's largest metropolitan areas. Driving on the newly opened stretch will be free until Nov. 11, when motorists with state electronic toll tags will start paying about 15 cents per mile, up to $6.17 for the full 41 miles; those without toll tags will be billed $8.21 for the full length.
