This speed limit reduction is unjustified and unfounded. The Texas DOT is committing arcentile rule. In addition, they are violating the engineering rules set out in their own traffic engineering manual. Next time you receive a ticket for driving 75 in the newly posted zone, you have the governor, the Beaumont district office and the state traffic operations department to blame. There is NO evidence to suggest that lowering the speed limti will reduce accidents injuries or fatalities. This stretch has only had 3 fatalities on it over the last 6 years.

There is absolutely no justification for lowering the speed limit from 75 to 65 mph on this section of road. Traffic flows at 75 routinely and the road is not a dangerous stretch at all.This is an attempt at revenue generation and motorist control. The Beaumont TX city council voted almost unanimously against this move and the citizens of Texas are going to continue to vote with their feet. Having an inside knowledge of how TX DOT is setting this speed limit, they are guilty of engineering malpractice.
