Pass a cop at 80 MPH on the Highway, and NO TICKET

Well, not quite yet, but in a few more days. Texas Transportation Commission just okayed raising the speed on parts of 10 between San Antonio and El Paso to 80 MPH!:cool: This is in rural areas and trust me, there is nothing for miles out there! May have to take the Sky for a road trip!:lol:

When they do get the limit raised, be sure you invite Angelqute1 to join you in a speed run. I understand she has experience with the Sky at speed.
:D

I have a friend who drives ahhhh let's say there's never much room under his right foot... When we pass a cop he usually mutters "Can't stop what ya can't see..." :driving:

Montana... home of the free and no speed limit. Well, from 1995 to 1999... this was the only restriction:
-------------------------------------------------------------
Motorists were to comply with the "basic rule" speed limit when they drove, in a manner that did not unreasonably endanger other highway users. To ensure this, drivers were to be constantly alert to changing traffic conditions and adjust their speed as conditions varied. These conditions were numerous and could change rapidly. Thus drivers were to be alert for:

* the amount and type of traffic sharing the highway with them. The traffic could have been heavy or light and may have included trucks, cars, motorhomes, farm equipment, and motorcycles.

* changing weather conditions that could have affected driver visibility and road conditions. These conditions could have included fog or snow and road surface conditions such as water or ice.

* the type of vehicle they were driving, particularly the condition of their brakes and the weight of their vehicle, which affects braking ability.

* the character of the highway they were driving. Drivers were to adjust their speed for hills or for winding and narrow roads.

* the presence of intersections, railway grade crossings or pedestrians.

* Driving in a careful and prudent manner, complying with the basic rule, required drivers to be constantly alert and mindful of their personal responsibility not only for their own safety but also for that of other highway users.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Here is another interesting fact:

A follow up study just completed by National Motorists Association shows the safest period on Montana’s Interstate highways was when there were no daytime speed limits or enforceable speed laws.

The doubling of fatal accidents occurred after Montana implemented its new safety program; complete with federal funding, artificially low speed limits and full enforcement.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
The new speed limit is 65... so they went from no speed limit to one of 65 and the fatalities doubled... amazing.

Bravo Texas!!!

That means 85-89 without getting pulled over, too bad the SKy is too gutless to "cruise" at that speed. My car would be up at about 2200 RPMS cruising at that speed.

Just remember that last time I was out cruising on the highway I ended up with 30 MPG. 2200 RPMS at 85-90MPH will be hard to beat even for the ecotec, I'll just need to stay out of boost:lol: .
