Default Toll road form Georgetown to San Antonio

Is anyone as excited as me about the new toll road at 85mph? I saw some nice cars out there today probably due to the race. I also counted 10 state troopers around 11am

One of the biggest annoyances I have about texas in general is how often I get stuck on 35 where the speed limit is 70, and people are going 70 or less in the left lane

Im sure if you drive 85 a state trooper isnt going to stop you. They tend to aim 15 mph or higher over the speed limit to make it worth while.

The speed limit doesn't increase to 85mph until south of 290 a bit.

I'd probably do more harm than good.

I'm either in a white STi, wintergreen 330xi with M3 wheels and LEDs everywhere, or a silver X3 M-sport.
