Heh, heh.  You drive the limit?  Speed limits on the expressways (never
called freeways by the natives) and tollways are *only* recommendations.
Except around holiday weekends, the roads are only lightly patrolled by
state troopers.  And their speeder-catching hideouts are well known to
regular travelers.  Haven't done 55 in twenty years.  Zero tickets in
twenty years, without using a radar detector.  That should say something
about speed enforcement around here.
