The Florida Senate passed a slew of measures Thursday, including a bill that could raise the speed limit on certain Florida highways.
Speed Limits Bill
But, Sen. Audrey Gibson (D-Jacksonville) says she’s against the measure because it encourages Floridians and tourists to speed.
“When you increase the speed limit, you ultimately also have to increase the minimum speed limit. And, so we’re encouraging all drivers to drive faster whether they want to or not,” said Gibson.
