Down In Texas, The Cars All Go One Million Miles Per Hour

Texas' legislature is moving a bill to increase the speed limit on certain highways and rural roads to 85 miles per hour, the highest in the country. Throw in your "free 10," and you'll be able to drive 95 mph in Texas without much chance of getting pulled over. Maybe even 100, depending on how much speeding ticket revenue is needed to fill local budgetary gaps. You know what? Just floor the goddamn thing and forget the limit altogether. It'll catch up to you in a few more legislatures.
