On some Texas roads, you can drive 85-mph

Texas law now allows highway speed limits of up to 85 mph -- the highest in the nation -- but speed freaks may have to wait awhile to get their groove on. The law took effect Sept. 1, but for now the state's top posted speed -- on only a handful of lonely stretches in far West Texas -- is 80 mph and likely to stay that way for a while.
