The Georgia Department of Transportation says, starting Tuesday the speed limit on I-75 will be reduced from 70 to 65 miles per hour.

The Georgia Code of Motor Vehicle and Traffic states 65 miles per hour on a highway on the federal interstate system which is inside an urbanized of 50,000 or more will be designated by appropriate signs.

"I'm not sure what the statistics are but if it helps save lives and cuts down on accidents on the interstate it's probably worth doing," said Valdosta resident Jimmy Holmes. "Five miles per hour is really not that bad of a deal. If it makes things safer it's probably worth the change.

Georgia is the sixth fastest-growing state in the nation and the GDOT says they are committed to making sure residents within the city limits are safe.
