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.
