Multiple news agencies have previously indicated that the government of Texas has just now launched the nation’s road with the fastest speed limit.
According to the news, motorists will be able to travel at 85 mph throughout a 41-mile stretch of the Texas Highway 130. The road has been under construction for three years and, according to some, it has been designed to alleviate the crowded Interstate 35 corridor that links Austin and San Antonio.
At this moment, some safety advocates have been asking the authorities if a road that allows drivers to go over 80 miles per hour don’t pose a serious risk to drivers everywhere. Some believe that more accidents could occur because motorists driving at high rates of speed could have less time to react in order to prevent accidents.
