Could Michigan highways become faster? The Michigan Senate has voted in favor of a bill that would raise the speed limits on 1500 miles of rural roads.
On 600 of those miles, the speed limit would go from 70 to 75 miles per hour.
The other 900 miles of road would see speeds rise to 65 miles per hour.
Supporters say the higher speed limits are in areas where drivers already surpass current speed limits.
