Michigan lawmakers consider speed limit hikes

LANSING (WKZO) -- In the coming weeks, legislators will review a proposal to raise the speed limits on most Michigan roads.  There is discussion of setting those limits based upon scientific studies that indicate what a safe speed would be on a specific road when 85-percent of the cars are moving at or below the limit while the rest are speeding.

Some highways may see limits increased from 55-to-70-miles per hour with others increasing to 75-miles per hour. Neighborhood street limits would remain at 25.
