NorthEscambia is reporting that Gov. Scott vetoed the highway bill that would allow the DOT to raise speed limits to 75... as he said he would.

The narrowly passed bill doesn't have enough support to override the veto.

Quote :
Scott wrote in a veto message. “I strongly respect the opinion of state and local law enforcement officers who have contacted me to warn about the possible serious negative consequences should this bill become law. While the evidence suggests that increased driving speeds are not the sole cause of traffic accidents, they clearly contribute to the increased severity of vehicle crash outcomes in the form of needless injuries and deaths.”

The complete article at NorthEscambia.com

No biggie - We have two vehicles with about 200,000 miles on them and don't want to push 'em hard anyway.

(That article talks about other bills too.)
