edmo: Average speed will be much lower thanks to slowing to pay farking tolls.
UberDave: I wonder if it will be like the NE Sam Houston toll way that's three lanes, flows perfect, and all Easy-tag. Oh, and a traffic cop on every overpass catching speeders going 70mph in the 65mph zone while ignoring people on the adjacent non-tolled beltway going 75mph in a 55mph zone.
RickTheVote: "Texas sucks"/Austin rocks
Just another Heartland Weirdass: So they gunna keep killing teenage retards though, right?
valar_morghulis: I once drove through Texas.
CruJones: The problem is you have to drive about 20 miles out of your way to get to the damn toll road, which makes it end up taking about the same amount of time. It will be great for driving to Dallas, or anywhere in that direction though.I doubt anyone will be driving 85 though, the norm is about 95 on the existing parts...
Satanic_Hamster: fark toll toads.
deliciousflavor: It accepts North Dallas Toll tags as well, even houston tags i would guess.
DrBenway: Is it really that hard to write a factually correct headline that pokes fun at Texas, submitter?
phojo1946: Does this mean that the roads leading into Texas are going to be 85 but as soon as you get to the middle of Texas, they change to 55 as after you get to the middle of the state, any place you travel is going out of the state? So on the roadways going into the state, it is 85 but on the lanes on the other side of the median, going out of the state, the speed limit is 55? Just askin'?
opiumpoopy: Satanic_Hamster: fark toll toads.Non- toll roads are socialism.This is Texas.
rudemix: They should build a one way road out of Texas with high speeds.
pippi longstocking: It's a beautiful idea!The State generates revenue, the idiots that don't understand physics think it's a great idea with more "fredum" and all, and the insurance companies get to raise their premiums.It's a wonderful idea if you're rich, powerful, and benefit from said situation, otherwise you're a stupid peasant.
