We need 85-mph (More like 90 to 100) on our highways, like we need more idiots texting and gabbing away on their cell phones whilre they think they're driving. I would like to know the condition of the vehicles and not the obvious like brakes. What are the speed ad heat rating of their tires, the tread, but mostly when they were anufactured. I also would like to know the condition of the vehicles suspension and any modification that has altered the vehicles center of gravity. Most of the cars on the road today weren't manufactured to drive 85 for 41 mles straight. Passing yes, maybe, but not to cruise along at 90-mph.
