Tell KCUR: Have You Ever Tried To Get Out Of A Speeding Ticket?


 An effort to increase speed limits in Missouri has us curious about your history with speed in the Show-Me state.

Missouri could become more lead-foot friendly if a proposal to increase the maximum speed limit on rural interstates, from 70 to 75 mph, makes it through the Missouri Legislature this year.

The proposal out of the Missouri House of Representatives follows a similar move from Kansas, which boosted the speed limit to 75 mph on some of its highways in 2011.

While KCUR doesn’t advocate exceeding legal limits, we want to know about your speeding experiences under the current laws.
