The Georgia House of Representatives has voted to increase the speed limit to 70 mph on interstates in urban areas.

The legislation would raise the speed limit from 55 mph in areas with populations of 50,000 or more.

Department of Transportation officials have said the proposal wouldn’t mean an automatic increase in speed limits on all of the area interstates.
