EA Games Campaigns “Prop 130”

With the release of EA Games’ Need for Speed: Most Wanted coming at midnight, the video game company has unveiled another great idea for us “lead-foot” enthusiasts. While this is merely just an idea being a part of the video game release, it does catch our attention enough to begin taking this idea, Prop 130, into serious consideration. If you take a look at the image below, it gives a suggestion to how the America economy “could” benefit from raising the speed limit.

Please do not take this proposition too literally, because we all know that a 130 mph speed limit is well beyond a reach… Or is it? In certain parts of Texas, some highways already have an 80 mph speed limit. In the Detroit Metro area, the speed limit on the freeways outside the city limits are 70 mph, as well as many other states having 75 mph speed limits on highways. I guess what we’re trying to hint at is, what if we could implement our own Autobahn? Or, what about even making the far lane the actual designated “fast lane?” I’m just throwing out suggestions, but EA Games has definitely beaten us to the punch with this proposition…
