Could the speed limit on some of Florida’s highways be raised in the near future? That is a very real possibility now as the Florida House narrowly passed the bill to raise the limit by only 2 votes. If the bill is passed it does not mean that speed limits will be raised at all. before the speed limit can be raised on one of Florida’s main highways, state traffic engineers would have to first determine whether the roadway is safe enough for a higher speed.
Current law allows for 70 mph on interstates, 65 mph for highways with a divided median and 60 mph on certain other roadways, including rural highways. Under the bill, all of these limits could be raised by 5 mph. The maximum highway speed limit could rise to 75 mph. Florida last nudged the state speed limit to 70 mph in 1996.
