Arkansas House wants to increase speed limit to 75 mph

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas drivers could soon reach their destinations a little faster.
The Arkansas House has approved a bill directing the state Highway Commission to raise the speed limit on controlled-access highways to 75 mph. The current limit is 70 mph. Trucks would have to operate at speeds 5 mph less than that of automobiles.
On other roads, the maximum speed limit would climb from 60 mph to 65 mph, if engineers determine the speed can be raised safely.
The bill passed the House on Thursday in a unanimous vote and now heads to the Senate.

Original speed limit on I-40 in Arkansas was 75 and I think they were designed for that speedin most places. But lower speeds for trucks didn't seem to work a few years ago.
