Texas Highway to Turn Into ‘Autobahn’ [VIDEO]

Have you ever dreamed of driving in the Indy 500?  Felt the “need for speed”?  Sped down an open highway just long enough to prove your hot rod was all that?

Well, guess what?  Your urge to test automobile aerodynamics is a mere four hours away, and if you look forward to riding roller coasters at an amusement park, then you should get the very same rush about taking the family on this excursion.

You may think the highway sign is a misprint, until you keep seeing “SPEED LIMIT 85″ every three or four miles, but make no mistake about it, a visit to the optometrist is completely unnecessary.

This movie plays out daily now at the I-35 corridor (41 mile toll road) between Austin and San Antonio.

Somehow, I just don’t think my 1974 lime green Ford Pinto can muster 85.

While the commuters are thrilled, a spokesman for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says that higher speeds get people to their destination faster, “but the trade-off is more crashes and more highway deaths.”

They may have something there.  Just ask James Dean!
