    driving home tonight from work i noticed 70 mph signs are up....i didnt think they would put them right outside the city, but as soon as i hit Waukesha Co they were there.....and everyone was now going 80mph instead of 75mph

    Nice......

    i still dont get why it took 2 years
    i still dont get why its 70 and not 75.....why copy IL and not MN

    sad WI is playing catchup with IL

    Lots of 70 speed limits in the southeast. I've found that setting the cruise control on 79 the troopers don't even flinch.

    MN is 75 and going west it seems to be all 75.....isnt SD 80?

    i drive up north to Wausau to visit relatives and there is no reason not to go 75+...there is just nothing...

    just dont get why it took 2 years to get 70mph.....why is WI always last....We should be ahead of IL, not behind playing catchup

    ill take anything i can get....VERY happy w/ 70mph....and shocked they didnt save it for roads really far out of town....looks like every 65 became a 70

    SD will be going to 80mph but it's not there yet! WI is always behind to change a law it seems, that was pretty good when it came to upping the drinking age back in the day

    thought MN was 75.....i remember being shocked when i crossed the border when the family went to SD a few years ago...im old...my memory is fading?

    would love 85 mph on the long rides up north....if its a 4 lane freeway in the middle of no where i dont see why its a problem.....

    how does 85mph work when every Honda does 55mph?????

    i swear every Honda goes -5mph whatever the speed limit......love to blow bye them at 90mph when they are going 45 in a 55

    Utah is 70 mph through most urban areas and 80 mph on the interstates.

    Get a escort and a C/B and you can run as fast as you want. I made Cody WY to Libertyville IL in 18hrs. Daytona in 17.5. Can't wait until this vacation. I just hope I can find Gas stations close enough. I try to average of least 75mph including stops. 90Mph is the speed I drive. Props to Jimmy.

    They have been doing 75 to 80 here in the Fox Valley for years now! :oops: Many didn't wait for the signage to tell them to do so! :D

    We have a small stretch of the main highway that is 70. It will never go over that because the Prius' won't be able to keep up.:( Everywhere else here its 60. Now you can see why I am always getting warnings. o_O Hellcats don't like to idle at 60.

    We are 65 and 75. I long for those Texas roads where it's 85. :)
