OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill this week to increase the speed limit on Oklahoma turnpikes.
The new law increases the speed limit from 75 to 80 on turnpikes and from 70 to 75 on certain state highways.
State Rep. Daniel Pae, the bill’s author, said new speed limits will be implemented gradually, sensibly and safely.
Pae said he worked on the bill with the Department of Transportation and secretary of transportation.
