Texas Opening Nation’s Fastest Highway
You know how they say you just can’t get out of Texas fast enough? Well, it appears the state agrees, which is why they’re building a highway with an 85 miles per hour speed limit. Finally, we stand a chance to get the heck out of that state before succumbing to an intense case of road rage.
The toll road, which opens in November, will span 41 miles, running from Austin to Seguin. It will be the fastest road in the country, beating out the previous record of 80 mph.
And while the idea might be pretty cool for drag racers and ‘Fast and the Furious’ stuntmen, we all know that many of us already do 80 on highways, so our guess is that we can say hello to the introduction of speeds anywhere from 95 to 110mph in Texas.
On the bright side, if you don’t die in a gnarly accident, you’ll get where you’re going much faster.
