Which U.S. State Has The Lowest Statewide Speed Limit?

Oregon
New Hampshire
Hawaii
Alaska

Answer: Hawaii

If you’ve got a hankering for the open road, the wind in your hair, and high speeds that leave your fellow travelers in the dust, you might want to avoid planning your next wild road trip for Hawaii.

Not only is there a serious lack of long open roads in the first place, but you won’t find a single street or highway in the whole state with a speed limit above 60 MPH. When congress returned control over speed limits to the individual states (via the removal of federal limits put in place by the 1974 Emergency Highway Energy Conservation Act), we have to assume that statesman in Hawaii shrugged and went “55 MPH might have been a tad slow… let’s live a little and bump it up to 60!”

If you’re looking for the highest speed limits on the other hand, head over to Texas. Per Texan law, speeds are not set across the entire state but by regional regulations such that the highway speed limit in Texas ranges from as low as 65 MPH all the way up to 85 MPH.
