Detroit suburbs are known for high rates of speeds on the interstate if you don't want to cause an issue (autobahn aka I-696). 70 MPH speed limit. 80 is the norm.

You have to pick your battles around here. I am known for running late to work. That doesn't help either.

But I totally agree with the premise and if I can stay in the right lane of the the 4 lane speedway. It just doesn't happen as much as I like. Getting passed by some people is OK. I try to find a semi truck doing 65 to 70 in the right lane and follow it.

But, getting passed by EVERYONE means you are causing trouble that is not worth it. Minimum safe is about 65, depending on time of day.
