Turnpike Speed Limits

Traffic flows along the Creek Turnpike in Tulsa, Okla., on Tuesday, January 14, 2020. MATT BARNARD/Tulsa World

Driving to Oklahoma City on Interstate 44 out of Tulsa will have a section of road increased to 80 mph.

Everyone knows the troopers will not stop you for going 5 mph over the limit.

So raising the speed limit to 80 means one can drive 85 mph-plus. Most drivers will become rocket man behind the wheel.
