There has been a lot of rumbling about this lately and I have been asked this a lot. More to the point, will this increase or decrease the amount of traffic tickets written? Probably not. Most of the proposals to increase the speed limit on Florida’s roads focus on rural roads and areas with low population density. Since the vast majority of traffic tickets are given out in densely populated areas, increased speed limits will have little effect the amount of tickets given out by your local police department. Since most Floridians drive at least 75MPH now on the I-95 and the Turnpike, raising the limit will just encourage most drivers to drive 80+ MPH to keep up with traffic. In the meantime, try not to go faster than the cars around you and look out for the cop hiding in the bushes or behind that next bridge.
