Opinions are mixed on a recent speed-limit change implemented by the Texas Department of Transportation (DOT). The DOT raised the speed limit from 75 to 80 mph on state Highway 45 and state Highway 130, outside the city of Austin.The DOT's public affairs officer, John Hurt, stated that these toll roads are made to accommodate vehicles moving at these high speeds, and said that the distance between the highway's exits are sufficiently spaced out to ensure both efficient and safe transportation. He also stated that the increased speed limit will make drivers looking to avoid traffic more inclined to travel on the toll roads.However, Hurt said that it's critical that drivers keep their full attention on the road when driving on the toll roads regardless of speed. He pointed out that reaction time and distance are significantly decreased at high speeds, making it even more dangerous to do things like text and drive.austin texas car accident lawyerOthers expressed concerns that the increased speeds not only decreases fuel efficiency, but that driving at higher speeds increases the risk that an accident will be deadly. Still, others are happy with the increase, saying it will allow them to reach their destination more quickly, and that there really isn't much difference between going 75 mph or 80 mph.It's unknown what, if any, effect, these increased Austin speed limits will have on the number or severity of car accidents on Highways 45 and 130.
