Opening Arguments



AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas prides itself on being the biggest — now it’s also the fastest.

On Wednesday, a newly constructed toll road opened about 20 miles south of Austin with a speed limit higher than any other roadway in the nation: 85 mph.

Can't think of any stretches here that would be safe for that speed. Unfortunately, I encounter a lot of drivers who treat I-69 as if it were.
