Yeah, that's about right, you could always try to get there quicker, but you run the risk of getting a ticket. Hummmmm, noone I know would voluntarily pay more to their insurance company.

It took me 1 hr to get from Kure Beach to Wilmington on a Saturday at 430pm. That stop light in Carolina Beach had traffic backed up >1 mile.

We were going the opposite direction at that time and couldn't believe the back up. Do you know why everyone was heading that way at the same time or is that normal?
