Every Interstate that I have seen has a MAX/MIN (example: 70/40) speed limit. With two or more lanes. It would seem that there are 'fast lanes and slow lanes'. For you to say that "if your can't stay with in 5mph of posted limits" is a little over the top for one to say. I will drive in a safe manner for me and those around me and for my equipment. Driving crazy fast in heavy traffic and not having room to stop or slow down like a car will have you ending up on a tow hook because of the crash that you are in from going to fast. Drive the conditions. Keep your spacing, because people will continually jump in front of you (I guess you don't like that? Neither do I, but I know that is the way it is.) Keeping up with traffic is not
goal #1, driving safely at a good steady pace is. Driving on secondary roads all of the time could be and sometimes is more unsafe than 10-15 mph slower on the interstate.
