I drive 65-70 in the FAR RIGHT lane and people hate me. Too bad. My car is old and can't handle high speeds.

the law is just a bunch of corrupt politicians. we have no obligation to follow stupid laws (we do have a threat of violence/penalty from government though). so we dont have to pretend that because it is the law that makes it right.

drive whatever speed you want. stop whining about what speeds other people are driving.

The speed limit was lowered nationally by Congress to save fuel during the gas crisis. You're making it solely about road safety, and that's a very misleading argument.

I remember reading an article where speed studies were conducted and it was found that NJ's highways flow closer to the average of 63-66 mph (so our highways aren't 'true' 55 mph roadways).

We should be able to effectively command a vehicle moving with traffic flow at speeds above 55 mph.

of course prkway and trnpke and interstates see that and more. the idea is to have everyone at the same speed to avoid collisions. be assured not everyone will be doing 75. mix 55, 65 and 75 and you are asking for trouble.


Too many exits on our highways. Too much traffic. Only time it might be safe, midnight to dawn. then the deer would be a problem.


Fine for maine, vt and nh.


As bill cosby asked the guy who delivered his 200 mph cobra, when he was told to occasionally blow out the carbon by driving the cobra 200mph.....'where am I going to drive it up to 200 mph to blow out the carbon??? the guy answers, nonchalantly, 'any side street'



I surely hope they never raise the speed limit from where it is, many/most of the drivers in the Philly Market of NJ can't even drive safe enough at the current speed. The NYC market of NJ to me handle the current driving speed better IMO, but it's too congested to raise the speed limit from where it is - If anything the 65mph speed limit should be dropped to 60mph, again IMO.

why? it should be addressed by locking them in prison.

this is a conversation among citizens, not an attempt to change anything. while they law may say this and the government may do something; that has absolutely no impact on our opinions. if your opinion changes based on whatever the law happens to be, then you have zero morals. so dont bother citing the law or suggesting complaining to POS politicians.

You don't get pulled over these days unless you were cutting people off and past 85mph.
