Kansas Speed Limit Increase Proposed

Kansas’ maximum speed limit could soon be on the rise.

KAKE reports that a proposal in the Kansas House of Representatives is calling for raising the speed limit to 80-miles-per-hour on any separated, multi-lane highway.The measure was presented before a committee earlier this week.

Critics of the proposal, including the Kansas Department of Transportation and the Kansas Highway Patrol, say that raising the speed limit could be dangerous for drivers. Kansas increased its maximum speed limit on highways to 75-miles-per-hour in 2011 and KDOT says that the state has seen a rise in the number of traffic fatalities during that time.

Is this proposed speed limit change endorsed by any organizations other than the Kansas Society of Morticians or the What’s the Fastest Way Out of Brownbackistan Club?
