I Can Drive 85

Speed Limit Sign 80
Texas raises speed limit on some roads to 80.

You don’t usually get a speeding ticket unless you are going 5-mph over the speed limit. So when Texas raised the speed limit last week to 80-mph on parts of Interstate Highways 10 and 20 around Fort Stockton, does this mean you can drive 85? Texas increases speed to 80 mph on some roads.
Last week, state highway officials in Fort Stockton unveiled the first 80-mph speed limit sign -- reportedly the fastest posted speed limit in the nation…"People don't survive crashes at that speed," said Tom Smith, director of the Texas office for Public Citizen, a consumer advocacy organization.
"This will result in more deaths," said Russ Rader, spokesman for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. "You get somewhere faster, but at what cost?"

I’m not sure if this is a great idea. You can might get to your destination faster, but while your flying at 80-mph, 18 wheelers still have to drive 70-mph. And if you are driving a car as crappy as mine, then there is no way you are going to reach the 80-mph threshold before most of the pieces of your car fall off.

I could get my car fixed so that it would be safe at that speed, but that would require money for duct tape. The stay-at-home-dad gig that I have right now doesn’t pay very well. Anyone need a stay-at-home-dad that cooks, does windows, enjoys being there for the kids, blogs, and gives great backrubs (backrubs for women only)?
