YOUR THREE CENTS: Do you support efforts to raise the speed limits on Florida highways?
Two Florida state senators want to let motorists drive faster on the state's highways.
Senator Jeff Brandes, a Republican in St. Petersburg... and Senator Jeff Clemens, a Democrat in Lake Worth, are filing a bill that would let the state raise the speed limit up to 75 miles per hour on some highways.
Brandes says the bill would allow the state to raise the limit if traffic engineers believe is it safe.
He says the state has not reviewed its speed limit since 1996.
The speed limit on interstate highways is now 70 miles per hour.
The limit is 65 miles per hour for highways with a divided median and 60 miles per hour for other roads overseen by the state.
The bill would increase those limits by 5 miles per hour.
