Mine was a fact though I forgot 60 mph through Bangor for three miles.
The trouble is vacation time is also road construction time and speeds are lowered to 50 everywhere there is construction.
In the winter there are rolling speed limits due to weather. Big signs are there and will advise you about 45 mph. No way to predict when or where.

No way, people don't make mistakes or overlook things.

Happens to the best of us.

Per the NYDOT, whatever the posted limit is. No trailers or commercial license plates on any Parkway.

Thanks again to all of you who are supporting this project. FYI, I am starting to do research on each state by looking at Vehicle Code, DMV, and Department of Transportation. I can't believe how long it takes for some states. We will get this completed and have something useful even if it is only for my DW .

The posted list is much different than the listing on the RV Nerds site. https://rvnerds.com/resources/speed-limits-and-towing/
There is a a good explanation of the California and Washington statutes, also.

I believe the 75 is stated as a Maximum.


As an actual tire engineer and expanding on post #42 I suggest that people consider tire "Speed Symbol" as they do the "Red Line" on their engine. Yes it is possible to run that fast and even faster but I doubt that you will find anyone advocating for exceeding or even driving at engine red line for more than a few seconds.


RV owners complain about short tire life but when informed of the actual Science behind the 65 mph recommended maximum all I get are arguments that "65 is too slow" or "I don't like driving the right hand lane."
My response is ... Then stop complaining about tire blowouts.


You can Google "Interply Shear tires" if you want to be exposed to the science behind the why your tire life is shorter than the tires on your motor vehicle.

The NY speed limit is 55 unless posted otherwise. On limited access highways and interstates you very likely will see higher limits. The real limit is your tire ratings if lower than the posted limits.

I agree every website is different. I went on Illinois state police website and it's wrong because it hasn't been updated since 2020 and the newest update is 2022

I didn't base that on websites. Utah has no truck speed limit. Idaho has signs that post that info. Oregon state website is unclear. I was called into the port of entry scale for a paperwork check. I asked the scale cops and they said that the truck speed limit only applies to commercial vehicles. They told me what size it started at but I don't remember what they said. I don't drive anything commercial small enough not to have it apply. Washington has signs saying when towing follow the truck speed limits. That is only different when the speed limit is 70. The truck speed limit is 60. Where it's 60 it's the same for everyone.
