SAN ANTONIO - The fastest highway in the U.S. is now open.
The grand opening of Highway 130 took place Wednesday morning. Drivers can now legally drive up to 85 miles per hour on the stretch between Seguin and Austin. That's led to predictions that drivers used to going faster than speed limits will routinely hit 100 mph.
State officials say they're not worried about increased danger. They say traffic deaths are down on some West Texas highways where the speed limits were raised.
Drivers can get a free test drive for the first two weeks. After that, they'll have to pay.
