Florida Senate OKs 75 MPH Speed LimitsSpeed limits on Florida highways could be raised from 70 to 75 mph under a bill the Senate passed Thursday despite concerns from opponents that roads would become more dangerous.
Bill Could Raise Fla. Speed Limit To 75 MPHHighway safety advocates say that if the Florida Legislature passes a bill that would allow the state to raise the speed limit to 75 mph there could be more crashes, injuries and deaths. The bill's supporters say people are already driving that fast and the speed limit should reflect reality — and would actually be safer.
