Feel The Need For Speed?

$25 could get you 90 miles per hour!  That is if one Nevada politician has his way.  His name is Gino.  And, he thinks if people would pay a fee to speed, it would take care of the state’s debt!

One Nevada gubernatorial hopeful sees a speedy fix to Nevada’s budget crisis. Nonpartisan candidate Eugene “Gino” DiSimone believes people would pay for the privilege to drive up to 90 mph on designated highways – and fill the state’s depleted coffers.

DiSimone calls his idea the “free limit plan.” He estimates the plan would bring in $1 billion a year.

First, vehicles would have to pass a safety inspection. Then vehicle information would be loaded into a database, and motorists would purchase a transponder.

After setting up an account, anyone in a hurry could dial in, and for $25 charged to a credit card, be free to speed for 24 hours.

The Nevada Highway Patrol isn’t keen on the idea, saying it would lead to increased injuries and traffic deaths.
