If they want to do a study, they can ride with me to work. Everybody is doing 80 on the stretch of I-35 from I-44 to I-40. The whole stretch is 60 mph. They need to up that. I was doing 80 there the other day and a highway patrolman passed me.

I was doing 85 on Saturday on I-35 between OKC and exit 174–except for the usual traffic jams at the Guthrie exits—and got passed a number of times.

When you hear "studies" you automatically think they are referring to studies about safety relating to raising the limit to 80. But I bet that's not it. The studies they are going to do is about how much ticket revenue they might lose by raising the limits.

I have often wondered how much they have lost from reduced ticket “sales” on the interstates since installing the barriers in the medians. OHP used to be able to turn around in those, but now not so much. It seems like OHP doesn’t even bother any more, unless they are positioned near one of the turn around spots.
