Speed limits are going up in Georgia, according to a January 22 article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The increases will “put limits as high as 70 miles per hour on 95 miles of metro Atlanta freeways,” the article says. Natalie Dale, a spokesperson for the Georgia Department of Transportation, said the limits are in line with how fast people are already driving on the affected roads. She said that raising speed limits is “one of the more well-received, positive things” that the Georgia DOT gets to do.
