For the most part in the open, its 55-65... Interstates here are 70 lol... I don't think anyone in FL goes 70
It'* no wonder your state had voting issues....

Around here it'* pretty much 55-65 and it'* a matter of whatever you can get away with. Sports cars don't fare as well as the luxury sedans

Here in MN:
55=2 lane hwy.
65=4 lane freeway/4 lane hwy.
70=interstate.
There are a few exceptions, like going through towns/cities and some of the freeways in the Twin Cities area.

Exception: 494/694 loop is 60....

But yeah, we get to go 70 here legally. Just below 80 if you go by my rule of "No more than 10 over"

cities range from 15-40 or 45, then get 50 as you get on the highway, then 60 so on, most large highways are 60 or 65, all of the backroads are 55, technically even the gravel roads are 55(if a road is not marked the speed limit is 55 according to missouri law)

interstates are 70, i dont think any state in the US has a speed limit above 75.

I had heard when the fed'* changed rules to allow the states to post their own speed limits, that Wyoming and Montana were the only 2 that had sections of ther highways have no speed limits. I don't know if this is true or not. I don't even know if we have members in those states that could shed some light on the subject.

There was a Wyoming member who posted quite often earlier this summer, but I haven't seen any posts in a while. I have an IT guy at work that just got back from picking up his father'* 46 Chevrolet sedan in Montana. He used to live there and visits several times a year. I'll ask him on Monday
