Pennsylvania Senator Looks to Raise the Speed Limit

A Pennsylvania state senator wants to let drivers travel faster on Interstate highways and the turnpike.

Friday, Republican Joseph Scarnati proposed raising the speed limit on the Pennsylvania Turnpike and other major roads to 70 miles an hour.

While some motorists and shippers say the increase in the speed limit will expedite travel, others are voicing concern about safety.

Many law enforcement and motor safety officials say increasing the speed limit will only result in motorists driving 80 miles an hour or faster.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will be reviewing the final version of the legislation once it is formally presented.

When the Pennsylvania Turnpike was opened in 1940, there was no posted speed limit.
