This educational film from the Texas Department of Public Safety Historical Museum and Research Center begins with several PSAs for driver and bicyclist cooperation before a program comprised of highlights from discussions in Austin, Midland, and McAllen on the 55mph speed limit. Authorities and city officials discuss the importance of the speed limit and how it affects traffic accidents and driver safety.
