    SO you're saying to not play that game where you weave every other, or ever 3rd dash in the road, right?

    this sounds like war against those trying to expedite their adventures. i generally do 75-80 in 55 and 85 in 65's and i frequently drive by cops at this speed, i rode across ohio all the way on rt 30 and never got pulled over or really even noticed a cop. the interstates are really that bad??? this is making me reconsider my ohio route...........

    Ride on and keep them distracted for the rest of us. You're on a different scoot now.

    I usually drive 4 over and wait for a rabbit, then keep him just barely in sight.

    Way to take one for the team Bubba! You take the point and when I see the lights go on I'll back off to 71mph......lol
    I'm running I84 to I81 to I70 west. Take care out there!

    Same in Louisiana. It may appear mechanical or impersonal but it keeps complaints against Troopers down. Some people who are pulled over and given a ticket try to turn the table around and accuse the officer of being discourteous, rude, or whatever they can think of. Usually the offending driver is the one who is rude, not the officer. If the Trooper does the traffic stop by the numbers without anyother comment, he/she will never get in trouble.

    8 or so over and your safe,10 up and I'd be nervous,although I run 80- 85 across I 80 and have had no trouble,just watch ahead and run in the right lane as much as possible.

    In Ohio, is there a restriction on use of radar evidence within a certain excess over the posted limit?

    My speedo has always been very optimistic showing about 15 mph more than I'm going at 55 mph. No radar detector either. The biggest poblem is when no other cars are around to provide a point of refernce or cover.

    I'll second Gale's thoughts on 73!

    Where were you planing to jump on I-75? Before you take 72 through Springfield, consider jogging over to US 68 as a bypass, then OH 41 to I-75. I'd avoid I-70 near Dayton and the jct with I-75.

    Or stay on 68 up to Bellefontaine and pick up Us 33 to OH 117.

    Or take OH 41 from OH 73 at Locust Grove. From there to Bainbridge is really nice. Then you can skirt east of Springfield on OH 54.

    Just depends on how much time you want/have to spend.
