Indiana Considers Raising Speed Limit to 75 mph on Rural Highways


Share post:

Indianapolis, IN – Indiana motorists may soon experience faster travel on rural highways, as a new bill proposes increasing the speed limit. House Bill 1308, currently before the Indiana State House, aims to raise the speed limit from 70 to 75 mph on select roadways. 

This legislative move was discussed on Monday by the House Roads and Transportation Committee, though no action was taken during the meeting. The bill specifically targets certain stretches of rural highways for the speed limit increase. Proponents argue that this change will facilitate smoother and quicker travel across the state’s less populated areas, potentially boosting efficiency for drivers. 

The bill’s progression and potential impact on road safety and traffic patterns are still under evaluation.
