Governor Rick "Goodhair" Perry is asking pollution officials to look for alternatives to lowering the speed limit. This just gets more and more entertaining.
One thing to keep in mind is that average speed on Houston highways during peak hours is nowhere near 55 MPH, let alone 65 or 70. Take a look at the historic freeway travel times on the Texas A&M Realtime Traffic Map of Houston and see for yourself. I know that lowering the speed limit is only part of the solution, and it's one that's easiest to implement, but let's not lose sight of where the real action is.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 26, 2002 to The great state of Texas | TrackBack
