Another Great Reason To Enjoy Texas, The First 85 MPH Highway

The Dixie Chicks may sing about wide open spaces, but Texas is the reason we should be thinking on higher speed limits through vast open areas. A new highway corridor opened up between Austin and San Antonio. On that new section of pavement 85 mph is the speed limit, but there is just one catch. The new highway is a toll road and privately owned and operated for the next fifty years. To hit cruising speed on America's closest attempt at the Autobahn, pay the $6.17 toll and put the hammer down.

Texans can now roll 85 mph and get away with it
