Many of the eastern states have 65-mph limits. In the west, 75-mph (sometimes 70) is more normal. Montana has had no hard-and-fast numeric limit for cars on Interstates for some years but that is coming to an end now. Too many folks just can't stand not having sweeping, across-the-board rules whether they make sense or not. Thus, Montana goes to a 75-mph limit. I don't personally drive LOTS faster than posted limits. Depending on conditions I may go from 5 to 15-mph over on freeways. 2-lane highways vary a lot. I do not go over the posted limits in towns unless sticking to them would make me a road hazard. --Eoin On Mon, 29 Mar 1999 18:19:52 +0200, "Johnny RosÚn-Lidholm" <lidholmnopsam.se> wrote: >Just out of curiosity, what is the maximum speed limit in the US? > >The reason I wonder is because several messages lately has been about tyres >and at what speed the different tyres are most appropiate etc. I want to >know to be able to compare what a person in the US means by saying he drives >long distances at high speed. > >How many of you drive a lot faster than allowed over long distances, I mean >Saabs are not really slow cars... ;-) > >/Johnny >'81 Saab 900 GL >'87 Saab 900i > > Addressable as Bullwinkle in the commercial domain of mostlysunny
