    I wish they would put the speed limits up around here. 55 in a lot of areas and 65 in the rest. 55 is essentially a money maker since not many people do the speed limit.

    I want a license plate that says I'm a bamf and am safe at most feasible speeds. And most forms of sideways.

    Yup, that's 130. Seems to switch to 85 right after San Marcos.

    They really only help so much. Its a lot about situational awareness too.

    I remember driving from Midland to Carrizo Springs last year and thought it was great that I-10 was 80mph.

    It's surprising that there isn't a night speed limit that's lower. Seems that most places in Texas with high speed limits, the limit goes down at night.

    yeah, 2 reasons it isn't lower (and 1 that it should be).

    It's usually deserted
    It's a toll road

    ....and it's deserted because it's way outside of town....with lots of animals running across....when you're doing 85 (be honest, 100mph) in the dark is scary once you see your second deer run by.
