Speed Limits – Texas Defensive Driving Online Course

Speed Limits – Texas Defensive Driving Online Course

 
SPEED LIMITS – Texas
Speeding or driving too fast, is one of the leading causes of car crashes. The faster a driver is going, the less time they have to react to an emergency. Who sets the speed limits? Most states in the U.S. have adopted the speed limit language from the Uniform Vehicle Code that sets speed limits. Have you ever read the UVC? It’s really a great read. Curl up by the fire, sip some hot cocoa and dive right in.
 
Texas has adopted the following speed limits for its highways and byways:
• If you are driving on a street in an Urban district you must not exceed 30 Miles Per Hour.
• If you are driving in an alley, the limit is 15 MPH
• If you are on a highway numbered by Texas or the U.S. and outside an urban district, the limit is 75MPH.
• If you are driving on highway not numbered by Texas or the U.S. and outside an urban district, the limit is 60.
• If you are driving on parts of Interstate Highway 10 and on Interstate Highway 20 in Crockett, Culberson, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis, Kerr, Kimble, Pecos, Reeves, Sutton, or Ward counties, the speed limit is now 80 MPH
 
All drivers are expected to obey the posted speed limits. You should drive at the same speed as the flow of traffic and be aware of how fast you are going. Adjust your speed and following distance according to your own physical condition and the condition of your car. A good driver will also adjust their speed according to the weather and road conditions. 60 miles per hour on a dry highway may be fine where as 60 miles per hour on wet road can be dangerous. Driving too slow can also be just as hazardous. In 1964, a U.S. government researcher named David Solomon wrote a paper on the subject of speed and crashes. He found that drivers going the median speed of all traffic — not necessarily the speed limit — had the lowest risk of collision. He also found that the crash risk increases more sharply at speeds below the average traffic flow than above.
 
Texas used to have a minimum highway speed limit for nighttime driving but it was removed in 2011. Always remember, you can prevent crashes by practicing safe driving habits
