On the New York Thruway watch out in Fishkill, NY. They drop the limit to 55 and use that stretch as a revenue enhancer. They caught my brother that way.

Speed enforcement based on money? Say it aint so!
I know what isn't a fast road - 405 in WA state. A terror yesterday as almost always, never seen a 60mph highway where the lemmings will gladly putt along at 45 with light traffic and nobody in front of them, also nice slowdowns for no apparent reason, trucks without lane discipline, and some expasion joints that feel like foot deep holes. I need to remember to keep off that stretch between 6am-8pm.

on I-405 never forget the slow fade in in front of you in the slow lane or the "quick-dart" folks that come out of nowhere and haven't properly planned their freeway departure, dart in front of you, then proceed to poke along like donuts and mini-pies and Dr.Pepper to be downed. Yikes, I've gained a lifetime of the "quick-darters" from my western Washington driving days.

That is a fun part of 405, especially in Renton - people who veer over from the left lane to exit, cutting in front of everyone like they weren't there. I see it pretty much every time I torture myself with that road during daytime hours. Or those who get into the right lane for the upcoming 167 exit about 3 miles ahead of time, and then go 40, creating a backup.
But on to the fast roads topic, 90 and 82 east of the mountains are probably the fastest roads in the state, especially 82 past Yakima when the revenue enforcers become sparse.
