Speed limits don’t just vary across the country but they can vary every few miles depending on where you are driving, the type of road and the kind of habitation in the area. The speed limit range bottoms out at 35 mph and peaks at 85 mph. Usually, the increment or decrement of speed limit is by 5 mph.

This is primarily because of safety concerns and precautions that the locality have deemed important. But in recent years, speed traps have become a mainstay in these areas. That is, certain traffic and law enforcement personnel will deliberately set an unreasonably low speed limit that’s near impossible to observe.
