Top 5 Fastest Roads in US

Post by DeadSockPuppet on Mon Aug 15, 2011 9:01 pm

I came across this story and thought it was kind of interesting so I thought I'd share:

http://autos.yahoo.com/news/america%E2%80%99s-5-fastest-roads.html

At the bottom there's a link for pics/maps from the fastest roads.

These folks have never been on the watermelon 400 that people in Atlanta call I- 285....If your speed is only 80mph you better be in the far right lane or you will get "rund over".

lol at average speed of top 5%. I think pretty much every hwy in MT has overall average speeds higher than that.

Yeah most of the hwy in MT have no speed limit during the day so you would think people would be flying.

148 on loop 375 speed limit is 70


keep in mind there are never any cops on this road and almost no one uses it
and its a straight like 5 mile road

sad thing is even at that speed being passed by bikes (crazy mother fuckers)

I did about 110mph in a pack driving a Crysler Town & Country minivan. We were trying to get the hell out of New Mexico as fast as possible on our way to Colorado back in 1998. Not sure what hwy but there was nothing around for miles.

I agree, Mississippi is Totally different from Texas. Unfortunately there are backwoods uneducated idiots anywhere you go. But as far a driving, I would absolutely prefer driving in Mississippi to driving in Texas. No trees, no hills, no turns and no signs of life = no thank you.

Everything's bigger in Texas!
They take the whole "isolation" idea to a new realm. (j/k) it is a whole lot of land...and takes forever to get from one place to another.....crazy!
