As Speed Limits Increase, An American Autobahn Seems Inevitable

The idea of unfettered speed sounds exhilarating, but is the juice worth the squeeze?

Speed limits

In a country as majestic as America, speed limits seem almost shameful and unjust.

Driving has always been an extension of the soul.  This is particularly pointed and poignant in America, of course, where vast expanses of beautiful nothingness are kind of our thing.  The quintessential dream of anyone fortunate to have ever set eyes on our landmass is to take a carefree, extended drive from coast to coast, basking in the unmitigated glory of this creation.

Let’s be honest, folks; we have it made.

And, seeing as we have all of this unfettered space to work with, why limit how fast we can traverse it.  After all, on those lonely stretches of desert byway, there are no stop signs, turn offs, rest stops or restaurants.  There is just you, the vehicle that you command, and the friction of the road against your tires.  Why not throw caution to wind, at least for a few brief moments of exuberance?

This pursuit of high revving happiness may soon become a reality here in these United States of America, as speed limits continue to defy convention.

After years of seeing posted highway speeds creep up around the country, perhaps it’s no surprise that a California legislator would propose the ultimate in motoring freedom: No limits at all.

State Sen. John Moorlach’s vision for a Golden State version of Germany’s famed Autobahn — a stretch of pavement where you can drive as fast you want — is just the latest in a series of moves by states to put the pedal to the metal when it comes to speed limits.

In the US today, there are only a handful of states with above-average speed limits.

Seven states — Idaho, Montana, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wyoming — have allowed 80 mph speed limits on select highways. One, Texas, has 85 mph on a section of State Highway 130. Legislatures have upped limits as cars have become safer and more powerful and the price of gas has tumbled, lowering concerns about the poor fuel mileage that high-speed driving can bring.

Safety concerns are abound, of course, with experts stating that there is a clear correlation between higher speed limits and highway fatalities.

Instant classic…

Irony, thy political affiliation is Democrat. It’s simply astonishing to watch liberals trip over their own feet every single day, without fail. Check out the thoughts of this former ESPN reporter on the George Floyd rioters and looters, via Sporting News: Veteran NBA reporter Chris Palmer was called out on Twitter for a pair of tweets he sent within the span of a few days. Palmer was offering his thoughts on the protests across the United States in the wake of George Floyd’s death. On Thursday night, Palmer quote-tweeted a photo of a burning building with the caption, “Burn that s— down. Burn it all down.” But shortly after midnight on Sunday, Palmer had a change of tone once protesters showed up closer to where he lived. Here’s Palmer’s deleted tweet: And here’s the follow-up (screenshotted, in case he deletes it)… MORE: https://twitter.com/ChrisPalmerNBA/status/1266952657857474561?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1266952657857474561&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fformer-espn-reporter-tweets-burn-it-all-down-until-the-animals-came-to-his-neighborhood%2F https://twitter.com/ChrisPalmerNBA/status/1266957297860763648?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1266957297860763648&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fformer-espn-reporter-tweets-burn-it-all-down-until-the-animals-came-to-his-neighborhood%2F https://twitter.com/ChrisPalmerNBA/status/1266974249144553472 Here’s more protesting nonsense… https://twitter.com/AFP/status/1267246423487033345 https://twitter.com/NotoriousKoa/status/1267246160424525825 https://twitter.com/MrOlmos/status/1267246022427729920 https://twitter.com/KDagrin/status/1267246818699685889 https://twitter.com/BleacherReport/status/1267247218374766592

They’re not going to listen.

The woman in the clip below is right – hopefully. There are so many reasons to keep President Trump in office. Why violent liberals think they can get away with everything seems just a tad bit irrational. From Daily Wire: A woman in Santa Monica, California, desperately pleaded with rioters who were allegedly looting stores in the area on Sunday, screaming at them that they were going to get President Donald Trump re-elected. She screamed, “This is going to get Trump re-elected! Please stop! Think first.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/bri_sacks/status/1267224316745146370?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1267224316745146370&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwoman-in-l-a-begs-alleged-looters-to-stop-this-is-going-to-get-trump-re-elected Here’s more rioting madness from the weekend… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1267192414038564865 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1267267841868402689 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1267247347693731840 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1267254936691245057 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1267243719310430215 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1267261139198631936 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1267265540910964738 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1267263069727723521
