Texas - Texas drivers could soon be putting the pedal to the metal...legally.

The state senate has approved raising the speed limit on some highways to 75 mph...

And doing away with slower nighttime limits.

Texas is currently the only state to have lower speed limits at night.

The bill now goes to Governor Rick Perry for his consideration.
