“I feel the need … The need, for speed!” – Tom Cruise, Top Gun
Motorists definitely can relate to ‘Maverick’ when it comes to going fast. Going from point A to point B is much more enjoyable with more speed. Nobody wants to spend hours driving within slow speed limits or crawling behind slowpoke vehicles.
Fortunately, there are a number of highways where motorists can legally push their cars – and even themselves – to the limit!
While US motorists don’t have an Autobahn, governments in several states are adopting higher speed limits. Texas leaves every other state in the dust for fast highway speeds with its 85MPH limit – the fastest highway in the US. Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah followed suit as well as America’s northern neighbor, Canada, which has also imposed higher speed limits on some of its highways.
