    I've lived in Florida for most of my life and I had to laugh out loud when I read this. I guess I've never thought about how fast we drive down here. You're not the first one to talk about our speeders.

    I don't know if there's an average speed listing or anything like that, but as a resident I can assure you that going 95 mph isn't unusual.

    Just beware. You were extremely lucky you (and everyone else) didn't get pulled over by our lovely Florida Highway Patrol. I'll give you some local knowledge. The fine for going 30 mph over the speed limit is $250. And that's if you don't get a ticket for Racing on Highways, which FHP is prone to do.
