Here in Atlanta the speed limit on the largest interstate circumnavigating the city (I-285 a.k.a. The Perimeter) is set at 55 miles per hour (mph). This same interstate has from three to ten lanes on each side (20 lanes total) and never fluctuates in the speed limit. If you are not driving at least 80 mph you are going to get run over. I received a speeding ticket a few years ago for $350! I know some surface streets all throughout the city with speed limits at 55 mph and they are not even highways. Do you think it should be raised? What is the speed limit where you are?

The freeway speed limit here in California is usually between 60 and 70. However, almost everybody goes 80 or higher.

England is pretty simple. 50 mph on unmarked roads. Left lane of the motorway is 50 mph, middle lane is 60 mph, right lane is 70. Though, i have to check the last one. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Outside of town is usually 40 mph, then 30, then 20 mph in the centre, but thats just where i live.

Check out the site for Atlanta traffic times, cameras, and speeds if you want. It is a waste of time I guess if you do not drive in Atlanta.

Houston it's 65 on highways, 55 in some parts ... and anywhere from 35-50 on multi lane roads. Like everywhere else ... going 65 on the freeway will get you passed by everyone lol. 80's the avg. speed limit (unless a state trooper is nearby of course http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif )

in cancun there are virtully NO speed limets

but they tell you if you rent a car to try and stay under 80 or 90

literaly even if u dont have intentions of goign that fast you have to thes how trafic moves down there

you look like frogger trying to cross a road

Average speed on highways in Australia is 100kmph/60mph and sometimes 110kmph/65mph, but on some road in the Northern Territory there is no spped limit. So you can really open up. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Correct me if i am wrong. But i thought all three lanes of the motorway in the UK are 70 mph. Its only certain vehicles that have speed restrictions, like wagons cars/caravans etc.
