Shoot, I figured they would issue a "Suggested" Ticket.

Really?
That would be quiet a change from when I was there.

I often get passed by other RVers going faster than 55 mph and thinking that someday they will get a ticket but hasn't happen yet.

To the OP you might want to check with your local highway patrol or with the DMV.

Amen.

Remember that your stopping distance, whether in a motorhome or towing, is very likely greater than a passenger car's.

I think there was a conspiracy when the newer Ford instrument panels were designed. It's VERY difficult for the "nagivator" (that'd be me) to see the speed limit from the right seat.
You can mount the Tom Tom closer to you and see the speed on it via GPS!

It does get noisy when they have the sirens going.

Never in my 73+ years have I seen a state post signs saying "Suggested Speed Limit" on a highway, street or interstate.

It shouldn't be hard to spot the speed limit from the right, they usually put them on the right side of the highway. My DW spots them all the time and constantly reminds me of them.

They have a kind of "Suggested Speed Limit" here in Ontario. The ones on a white background are the speed limits by law. The ones on an orange background under a "curve ahead" sign are the "suggested speed limit" of that curve, but aren't the "by law" limit.

Orange/Yellow... Call me colour blind then...

Either way, I was referring to these kinds of signs:
