You're right. The interstate highway system was originally built for 70mph. Learninate your history, son.
Maybe you should read the minimum speed law that you posted earlier. Clearly it says that a person can drive at any speed as long as it is in compliance with the law. Around here, the law says 70 mph max and 40 mph minimum.

The maximum speed limit is not a required speed. If you believe it is, you need to say it out loud to hear how ridiculous it sounds. I can imagine a father trying to teach his son to drive. "Now son, make sure you stay at 70 mph or else the police will pull you over."

I'm still waiting for you to say "just kidding guys" because what you are posting is that ridiculous.

V C Section 22400 Minimum Speed Law

(a) No person shall drive upon a highway at such a slow speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic, unless the reduced speed is necessary for safe operation, because of a grade, or in compliance with law.

No person shall bring a vehicle to a complete stop upon a highway so as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic unless the stop is necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law.

(b) Whenever the Department of Transportation determines on the basis of an engineering and traffic survey that slow speeds on any part of a state highway consistently impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic, the department may determine and declare a minimum speed limit below which no person shall drive a vehicle, except when necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law, when appropriate signs giving notice thereof are erected along the part of the highway for which a minimum speed limit is established.

Subdivision (b) of this section shall apply only to vehicles subject to registration.

Amended Ch. 364, Stats. 1979. Effective January 1, 1980
