Save this post: speed limits standards around the world

Updated: Jul 16, 2021

What is the highest legal speed limit in the world ?

>>The highest posted speed limit in the world is 160 km/h (99 mph), which applies to two motorways in the UAE.

(1) Absolute speed limit — The absolute speed limit is the posted speed limit in an area. You break the absolute speed limit if you travel over the posted speed by any amount.

(2) Presumed speed limit — The presumed speed limit is not as straightforward. If an officer believes that you have broken the presumed speed limit, he or she believes that your speed did not suit the conditions at the time.

(3) Basic speed limit — When an issue arises involving the basic speed limit, it means that an officer believes that your driving speed was unsafe even

if it was at or below the posted limit. In this case, the officer would need to prove that your speed posed a safety issue. State which has the highest speed limit ?

>> Portions of the Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming road networks have 80 mph (129 km/h) posted limits.

The highest posted speed limit in the country is 85 mph (137 km/h) and can be found only on Texas State Highway 130 mph.
