Kentucky boosts speeds to 70 mph

| 7/11/2007

Drivers in Kentucky can put a little more pedal to the metal this summer, now that speed limits on most rural interstates have been raised from 65 to 70 mph for both cars and trucks.

According to media reports, road crews were swapping out signs on Tuesday.

The head of the Kentucky DOT says the extra 5 mph will be a plus for the state’s economy by moving people and products faster.
