EL PASO- Another new law that took effect today allows a speed limit up to 80 miles an hour in some places in Texas, including some of the roads leading into and out of El Paso.
A local spokesperson for TxDot says they're evaluating roads that are marked now at 70 miles per hour. If they raise the limit it might only go to 75 and it could be a year before anything changes.
