Several states toying with speed limit bumps

Published February, 07 2013

Utah may be expanding its 80 mph speed limit measures — one of the highest limits in the nation — to parts of I-84 and I-80 and some parts of I-15. The state last year upped speed limits to 80 mph on parts of I-15 in rural parts of the state after a trial period.

Along with Beehive State, New Hampshire, Mississippi and Connecticut state legislatures are considering bills to bump speed limits up to 75 mph or some highways.
