The Michigan State Police and some lawmakers say it’s time to boost speed limits across the state. Many limits have not been adjusted for decades.
Republican state Senator Rick Jones plans to introduce legislation next month to increase the limits. The former county sheriff says the measure would also reduce speed traps.
“We have had some artificially lower speed limits posted. I believe many of them are posted for revenue, and it simply is not needed.”
The legislation would require local governments to set speed limits based on scientific studies.
