In Texas the speed limit on state highways, highways with no shoulders, with people walking across the road to get the mail, is 75 mph. This includes areas with limited site distance like hills and curves.


A bit of a blanket and inaccurate statement. This is not true throughout the state. Interstates, yes, even 80 in some areas, but not ALL state highways, the Hill Country being one example.

MOST of the highways listed are interstates.

"As of September 2011, state law allows TxDOT to create higher speed limit on any state highway if found to be reasonable and safe through an engineering study. Each new 75 or 80 mph speed limit must be approved by the Texas Transportation Commission."
