Most of our turnpikes in Ok are 75 for both cars and trucks,towing or not,and most drive 80. Out in large open areas or where there is limited access you can safely drive faster, thats why West Texas did that. If you've ever driven for hundreds of miles and never saw anything but a tumbleweed or two you'd know what I mean.

Your speed limit in Illinois will be 55. I drive 60 to keep my Allison from hunting in and out of overdrive. The cops don't give me a second look. I am not aware of any cell phone restrictions.

Robert,

The last time I was in Ohio, it was still 55 MPH for trucks pulling trailers as well.

I know this might sound like a wise a** comment but I have to say it. Why not just read the speed limit sign as you enter the Interstate in question? No comment on the cell phone.

Because I'm still routing the trip and can take alternate routes that go around some of those states. Also being from Texas where you can drive two days and never leave the state, going through five little dinky states (each with their different laws and speed limits) in eight hours is a bit confusing to us Texans

"The 80-mph speed limit does not apply to commercial trucks, truck tractors, trailers and semitrailers. The truck speed limit will remain at 70 miles per hour. But the new limit does apply to pick up trucks and pickup trucks pulling a trailer." The nighttime speed limit remains 65 mph."

Not trying to highjack the subject from anyone, but above is the state quote and Rusty, I was supprised to find out "far west Texas" starts at Kerrville!

Best,

I guess I missed that subtlety - my source said the speed limit for trucks remained at 70/65.
