42 Days: Speed Limits

The countdown to returning to my family continues with another thing that I miss about California.

Day 42: Speed Limits

It seems like as soon as you get north of New Jersey, the speed limits get snail paced. Each road has a limit that feels about 15-20 mph slower than it should be. The main road by my house is posted at 25, but my car naturally coasts along it around 40. There are 4 lane, divided highways that have speed limits of 40.

This is rarely the case in California where the speed limit for every major highway is somewhere between 65 and the speed of sound. There are a couple spots on I-5 where you almost need clearance for take-off to keep up with traffic.
