Utah has raised a number of its highway speed limits to 80 mph. Finally, a government making sense about speed.

Normally, the state speed limit is based on the Feds giving money to the state for road maintenance if they keep the speed limit at 55MPH.
I love how UTAH told the Feds to stick it up your arse ... we don't need your fed money to fix our roads!
We wanna drive faster than a snail!!!

They don't need the Feds money because they sit on top of a ocean of untapped oil.

Interesting that they can save lives while raising the speed limit to a reasonable level. Traffic fatalities down, speed up.
NYS makes too much revenue with traffic citations to even consider this. Highest taxes, huge number of citations that now come with a court fee attached. This state truly sucks.

Numerous studies show that when traffic is moving at a faster rate, fatalities fall off (contrary to what the NYDOT feeds us). A bunch of western states have raised their speed limit to 75. Texas has an 85 mph interstate.
It will never happen here. Or if it does, we'll be the last state to do it. NY would rather spend money on $5000 radar units then to improve roads and infrastructure.
And to hire more Troopers at $67,000/yr (entry level) to hand out tickets. Most earning in excess of $80,000.

They did it to cut down on drive time between their wives houses.
