    "..think" "..if" two very damning words.
    A drunk drivers logic: If I drive faster, the less time the cops have to stop me DWI. Then driving and yapping on the cell.

  • This is a give and take situation. You give more speed and get more dead bodies, but you get there a little faster if you make it to your destination. With the divided hiways, 80 mph is reasonable. When all the vehicles are traveling in the same direction. But when you have traffic going in both directions with just a yellow line of paint to divide the traffic you will have collisions. From Victoria to Cuero or to Refugio should be 80mph and from Victoria to Golaid should only be 70 due to the road. I think some places should be 90mph if your car can handle it. What about the big rigs on the roads? Will they be able to drive 80 mph or will they be restricted to 70mph or less. They take much longer to stop than a car going the same speed. I think this bill will pass and not much will happen if it is done right.
