When we first started going to Florida we took US 27 all the way down to Tampa then caught State Route 301 to the Tamiami Trail and down to Naples.
It was a four day plus ordeal. I was pretty young back then. But one thing that stuck in my head was that we went through a town in Tennessee where
the speed limit was 17 miles per hour .
Funny how stuff like that sticks . 🤔
But back to your point.
I 75 never had a chance .
The last section in Michigan was completed in the mid 70s .
Shortly after that the Yoopers and Trolls descended on it towing their 60 ft.² Shasta RVs behind road salt rusted ford Pintos with bald four ply
It could best be characterizes as a almost Pikey like invasion .
The only difference was I can understand the pikeys !
There is one small but amazing difference I’ve noticed lately. For the last 30 years Georgia wasn’t endless blur of orange barrels which meant
doubled fine speed traps . ( that was certainly a racket )
Now you see a lot fewer of either and Tennessee is the new speed trap . I guess the federal speed limit changes pissed Tennessee off. Enter Sammy
I think I’m rambling so I’ll just stop now . Lol
