Are you ready to go 85 mph?

Are you ready to go 85 mph?

Do you know where the fastest road in America is? If you don’t, here is the answer: Texas.

Are you excited now? Statistics say people want to drive faster, and states are answering this desire. Over 20 states have speed limits of 70 and above. And there is nothing wrong with that.

Most cars are made to go fast, and drivers should be able to enjoy their vehicle’s performance from time to time. At least on a highway.

Most new models feel comfortable and safe when going at a higher speed. Drivers claim they can handle their beasts, and state governments understand it.

Do you think you are ready to go 85 mph?

Below is a list of the states with the highest speed limits.

1. Texas: 75 mph with 80 or 85 on specified sections

2. Idaho: 75 mph with 80 on specified sections

3. Utah: 75 with 80 on specified sections

4. Wyoming: 75 with 80 on specified sections

5. Arizona: 75 mph

6. Colorado: 75 mph

7. Kansas, 75 mph

8. Louisiana: 75 mph

9. Maine: 75 mph

10. Montana: 75 mph

11. Nebraska: 75 mph

12. Nevada: 75 mph

13. New Mexico: 75 mph

14. North Dakota, 75 mph

15. Oklahoma: 75 mph

16. South Dakota: 75 mph

Driving habits & driving reactions

On many the occasion, statistics have proven that driving fast may be dangerous and can kill people. It all depends on the drivers’ habits and capabilities though. Faster speed permits less time for reaction in the face of a deadly turn. Yet, good drivers know when to slow down. Therefore, it is not all about the speed limit.

The speed limit is just one factor in a potential car accident. Good driving habits are what counts. Any driver can build such habits over time. Like most things in life, it is all about experience and readiness to learn.

When you have accumulated a sufficient amount of miles without an accident, you will then move to the good drivers’ category. Good drivers are supposed to know how to react adequately and timely in a dangerous situation on the road. Let’s hope they really do.

Good drivers, bad drivers

It is not that easy to categorize drivers, of course. Speed limits have been in place to save you from yourself. A long time ago, they were enacted to control fuel consumption.

Now speed limits are imposed to make the roads safer because the traffic has more than doubled over the last decades. More drivers on the roads mean more accidents. Probably every one of us has lost or has friends who have lost someone in a car accident. It happens even to good drivers.

Drivers, of all categories, should think about not just fuel consumption, but people’s lives when driving fast.

Speed limits are here to help us recognize when and where to drive fast.

If you can’t go fast you can still drive, just move to the right lane.

When it comes to drivers from the CDL category there are different speed limits. Big trucks are always more limited, and there is a reason for this. Bigger vehicles can simply cause bigger damage if an accident happens. Yet trucking companies are not worried because the majority of trucks have built-in speed-limiting technology. And this is how it should be. Safety and fuel consumption are trucking companies’ highest priority, and thus, truckers should stick with the designated speed limit. Can you handle 85 mph?

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
