I suppose being able to park in the garage is too much to ask?

I did that years ago on Hot Rod Power Tour in the midwest when there was supposed to be huge hail coming. Went to K-Mart and bought air mattresses. Storm just rained.

Montana would only raise truck speed limits on interstate highways from 65 mph to 70 mph throughout the day. Currently, state highways are limited to 60 mph during the day and 55 mph at night.

Massachusetts would increase the state’s 65 mph speed limit to 70 mph

Kentucky will increase the speed limit from 65 mph to 70 mph on Interstate 165 and I-64.

California will get rid of speed differential for cars and trucks, and allow faster travel for all vehicles on portions of Interstate 5 and state Route 99.

Arkansas is proposing a bill for higher speed limits on certain highways and mandate a 75 mph speed limit on freeways outside urban areas while large trucks would be allowed to travel up to 70 mph.
Texas is leading the way on these speed limits. The only thing that won't be found is "safe and sane" as one state had many years ago ... can't remember which one it was.

It was Montana, and it was called 'Reasonable and Prudent'. A friend got a ticket though, in his Viper, after people complained that he was driving too fast, on his way to Las Vegas!
