This could be considered Hagar's foray into social awareness. While some Rock stars were concerned about the environment or civil rights, Hagar was upset with the lowering of highway speed limits. He had a lot of support for his cause.
In 2001, Hagar finally updated this to reflect new speed limits on American highways. He re-recorded it as "I Can't Drive 65" for the NASCAR album Full Throttle.
This was Hagar's biggest hit as a solo artist. He joined Van Halen a year after it was released.
