Advocates of 80 mph speed limit say it makes roads safer
Casper Star Tribune: Chris Ramirez likes driving fast.
He’s traveled in cars approaching 146 mph on race tracks. When he’s not burning rubber, he spends his days working on classic and custom vehicles as the owner of Ramirez Rod and Custom in Casper.
He’s a fan of a new law that will boost the speed limit from 75 mph to 80 on certain parts of the Wyoming’s interstates. And he said new cars are equipped to withstand a potential accident at 80 mph.
“We repair wrecked vehicles on a daily basis,” he said. “The safety is there to handle a crash at those speeds.”
