Some state laws have changed. See updated speed limits here.

This summer, we’re all about road trips. Short trips, long trips … any trip that lets us see more of our beautiful, expansive country. But when traveling across state lines, it’s easy to forget that speed limit laws can vary. And nothing puts a damper on a road trip like a speeding ticket.

To help keep your driving record in good standing, here’s a handy breakdown of highway speed limits by state. (Giddy up, Texas!). Of course, this is just a guide. It’s your responsibility to abide by posted speed limit signs wherever you may find yourself. Happy (and safe) travels!
