DRIVERS will no longer be able to put their foot to the floor when they drive on Northern Territory highways from Monday.
The Territory is one of the few places left in the world which has no speed limits.
But this will change on January 1 when a 130km/h speed limit will apply on the Stuart, Arnhem, Victoria and Barkly highways and a 110km/h speed limit on all other roads, unless otherwise signposted.
Currently, an average of one person is killed on the territory's roads every week.
