Oklahoma To Raise Speed Limits

Legislation that increases speed limits on Oklahoma turnpikes and some state highways has been signed into law by Gov. Kevin Stitt.

The bill increases turnpike speed limits from 75 to 80 mph and from 70 to 75 mph on certain state highways.

The bill’s sponsor says lawmakers worked to ensure the safety of Oklahoma drivers while increasing highway speed limits. Officials will use traffic and engineering studies on issues like traffic density and infrastructure quality to determine where speed limits can safely be increased.
