Episode #29 – Historic Natchez Trace – Rising Speed Limits
This week, our Along the Way… segment features the historic Natchez Trace Parkway through Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi, relishing the southern scenery that surrounds travelers as they drive this 444-mile byway.
Ever since the so-called ‘double nickel’ nationwide speed limit was repealed in 1987, speed limits on interstate highways have been edging higher. In fact, a half-dozen states are currently in the process of raising their speed limits. Host Jeremy Krug will talk about the push for higher limits across the country and how it will affect your next long-distance road trip.
In This Week in Travel, Jeremy and Dave discuss the proposed hyperloop that could take travelers from Los Angeles to San Francisco faster than the speed of sound, plus the recent epidemic of purse snatchings that have taken place at – of all places – gas stations. Our comedy segment On the Lighter Side welcomes a special guest, fresh off his media tour. Don’t miss this week’s episode of Road Trip Radio!
