Full Bill Text ›
NMA Recommendation:

Senate Bill 629, designated as the Speed Limit Sanity Act, requires that speeds limit on certain limited access highways be determined through a traffic engineering survey based on the 85th percentile speed of free-flowing traffic. This bill is currently under consideration in the Senate Transportation Committee.

The NMA supports SB 629 because the use of the 85th percentile leads to safer highways by smoothing traffic flow and reducing accidents. Learn more about the proper way to set speed limits here.
