Here in NY if you're on the LIE and doing 70 MPH you better be in the right lane. I would have to say the average speed here is 80 to 90 MPH. Personally I try and keep it between 65 and 70 MPH while on my bike. It seems the police here no longer have a problem with these high speeds since I constantly see cars flying passed park police cars with no consequences. So my question is how fast do most of you drive while on the highways and expressways in your town, and do the police seem to care anymore if your going over the speed limit. btw... the speed limit here in NY is still only 55 MPH!
