California May Do Away With Speed Limits For Certain Lanes Of I-5 And Hwy. 99 (SB319)

California may do away with speed limits for certain lanes on I-5 and Highway 99, in order to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases.

Senator John Moorlach (R- Orange County) introduced SB 319 on Friday. If it passes, it would require the Department of Transportation to built two additional traffic lanes on northbound and southbound Interstate 5 and State Route 99. Those new lanes would have no maximum speed limit. The other lanes of traffic would still ban drivers from going more than 65 miles per hour.
