I lived in NJ for 5 years but never found a place where I could drive at 
"break-neck speed". Perhaps one of the interstates in the western part 
of the state on a Sunday...but most of the time I was glad when traffic 
permitted driving at anything close to the speed limit (I had a 40 mile 
commute each way).

But speeds are low everywhere in the US. Now that I have been back in 
Europe for 10 years, and only go to the US every couple of years, I 
always get struck by how slowly the traffic moves. Invariably, every 
visit involves a speeding ticket--I simply find it physically impossible 
to drive a car at 65 mph or even the 75 mph which is permitted in some 
parts of Florida (that is where my last visit took me, in October).
