85 MPH Speed Limits Proposed for Nevada

Nevada Republican Sen. Don Gustavson has introduced a bill that would allow the Nevada Department of Transportation to raise the speed limit to 85 mph on some highways. Research has shown that higher speed limits lead to deadlier car crashes, but not necessarily to a higher number of crashes. We'll talk with Gustavson about his bill and a transportation expert about the links between highway safety and higher speed limits.
