Steven Toth started this petition to Governor Doug Ducey and

Arizona freeway speed limits need to be raised from 65 mph to 75 mph.

1. The speed limit should be raised due to the advancement in car technology and the ability for the operator to have more control at higher speed.  This can be seen by the use of self driving cars such as the Tesla and the testing of ride sharing autonomous cars in Arizona. 

2. Enforcement of the current speed limit on Arizona freeways is non existent. Drivers will only slow down when a highway patrol or speed camera is present, otherwise the average speed limit is around 80 mph. Raising the speed limit will allow drivers to continue to drive without having to slow down due to one of these impediments which will increase safety on the freeways.

3.  Since drivers slow down when a highway patrol or speed camera is present this increases the risk of accidents and traffic on the highways. By increasing the speed limit it will allow drivers to be safer and and increase efficiency while travelling hopefully reducing the amount of traffic on the freeways.

4. Ducey has recently signed a law banning the use of cell phones while operating a motor vehicle, by increasing the speed limit it will reduce the number of people using a cell phone while driving since higher speeds typically require drivers to focus more on the road rather than a cell phone.

Due to the following reasons, Arizona should increase the speed limit of Arizona Freeways to 75 mph.
