Should speed limits on limited access roadways, also known as interstate highways, be lowered? In comments: why or why not?

Even if they did lower it, some people would be in such a rush and think their destination is so much more important than everyone else's that they would go over it anyway. I think it's pointless to change it refused less of the accidents that happen

I always see people drive slow anyways, so it doesn't matter.

It didn't work out so well the last time they lowered them.

The opposite. They are generally too low, and in many cases outside of downtown areas, much too low. A good way to tell is to note the speed of traffic during slack periods. If it is moving safely above the speed limit, the limit is too low.

They should be raised or eliminated outside of urban areas.

I believe the Dallas to Chicago v El Paso comparison is inaccurate

Keep them the same. I don't see a reason to change them.

Have you ever tried to drive across Texas? They're not high enough sometimes.

No but I drove from SoCal to Vegas, and most of it was a straight line of asphalt across barren land. I could have fallen asleep on the wheel and still not have crashed, just spun out off the nonexistent shoulder.

What ypu do is get behind a speeding big rig, they have radio and are in communication when it comes to radar traps or cops behind big ads. You're perfectly safe behind a big rig ;)

The road between Houston and San Antonio was bad enough. I can only imagine San Antonio to El Paso..

Dallas to El Paso is a longer distance than Dallas to Chicago

That might be the hardest element of all to change.
