    Smile NYS, NJ, PA, CT Highways to hit 80MPH or higher (w/o dangerous volume of course) ?

    I87 NYS (The further you drive upstate the faster you can go, many State Troopers but if you have a radar detector you should be alright because most of the radar are C/O)

    Highway 17 N/S (To many curves, there are places that are ok, but to many curves)

    Garden State Parkway ( At night love it just keep on driving, the more south you go the better, the more north you go SLOW DOWN, this and I 95 are one of the two highways that I see cars constantly doing at least 90 and over. Garden State Parkway N is full of cars with Laser but the more you head south there are more Radar)

    I 95 (One of the best highway to let your foot hit the bottom of the floor, petal to the mettle, if you have a V1 or Bel STI - R Plus and a Laser jammer you should not be receiveing any tickets. But seriously all you need is a Radar detector and stay in the middle lane and you should be alright. If you go to CT and you dont have a Laser Jammer SLOW DOWN CT is very LASER happy)

    Palisades Parkway (The speed limit it to low to be going this fast, but if the speed limit was higher this would be perfect)

    Belt Parkway (To many NYC Highway Portal cars and just to dangerous)

    Southern State Parkway (Very possible, but expect to run into traffic out of no where and Troopers all over the place, but if you have taken the highway many of times you kind of have a idea where they hide)

    Sunrise Highway (The more west you drive the more lights you will run into, the more east you drive the lest traffic, but suffolk county cops have there eyes on you, but I have realize driving west from suffolk to Nassau on Sunrise Highway there are really no Patrol whatsoever)

    LIE (A anyone that live in NYC, knows that this is laser trap central, yes it is very possible to hit 80 or above BUTTTTTT the chances that you will hit 80 for 10 miles without getting hit by a laser hit is slim to none)

    Meadowbrook highway ( Many state troopers, but at night be very careful specially around 8 - 10 PM)

    Grand Central Parkway (One of the best highways in the NYC, but the bad thing is the Highway Patrol police station is located off and exit by this highway, so they are always on it, but on a dead night this is a great highway to floor it, but there are a white DT charger and a NYC highway patrol charger that use laser when you are closer to the city. The more you drive out east you will start running into State Troopers that ONLY use Radar)

    New Jersey Route 4 to Route 208 to I 287 ( I have always told everyone that want to a drive to upstate NY is to take this highway. Driving on Rt 4 to Rt 208 to I 287 you will be upstate within under and 30 to 45 mins starting from GW Bridge)

    RT 4 (You will run into nothing more likely maybe State trooper here and there)

    RT 208 ( Are always local police that the highway happens to go thru so they give out speeding tickets within there area, but believe me when I tell you the patrol is weak)

    I 287 ( Nice highway to floor it, have a radar detector you will be alright)

    I 78 ( Put car in 80 MPH in curse Control and just slow down when the radar detects something, the reason why i'm saying this is PA only use radar anyways, just hide and take in the air)

    I 380 ( I LOVEEE THIS HIGHWAY, I'M SO IN LOVE, WANT TO MAKE OUT OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT LOL. The highway is not that long as others about 30 to 50 Miles and there is also a unknown long stretch of highway ( that what it says on the GPS it is after I 380 or before, I cant remember) The highway is SOOOO straight that if you have a Bugatti and wanted to check out the top speed you can do it.

    I87 is a nice route through NY. Majority of it is C/O 34.7, rare laser up north.

    I80 is really nice to hit some good numbers but I380 Is defiantly my favorite highway to "do the speed limit".

    I95. IIRC it was designed to support traffic at a substantially higher speed than the current speed limits in those areas.

    There is definitely potential to get "surprised" on that road. Good to haul on when it's clean though.
    The only thing that matters is not getting caught.

    Am I allowed to shift to the other side of PA? After all, it's still PA, lol... there's quite a few highways on this side of the state where you can go over 90 with little threat. However, with the radar drones every mile it could be rough running with a RD.

    On the same highways PSP doesn't generally begin citing until like 75-80 so you could, potentially, safely drive without any threat whatsoever at 80ish, even with troopers...
    I tell things how they are from my own opinion.

    Nothing that I write should be used as legal advice. I'm not a lawyer.

    I never want to go on the west side of the state again. The amount of drones there is RIDICULOUS! I had to do the PSL 95% of the time!!

    I 380 is a highway that a lot of drivers do not know about. I love it, now like some people have said you can deff be surprise on this highway I never been, but you can look at the highway and tell BUT no one tend to mention that the Highway is so straight (nothing to block the signal) that if you have a Radar you will be OK for sure in my opinion.

    I95 is driving speed Heaven in so many ways its not even funny lol.

    I have a question for anyone that have drive on I87 up north. I have drove to Canada twice and every time I run into KA Band probably at least 8 to ten troopers each way. But I have never ran into Laser, and when I hear it usually there a car around so I assume that it is just curse control or something like that. I always look in the back rear view mirror and dont see a trooper on the off ramp and when I do it is KA c/o.

    The couple of times that I have been to PA I usually stay on I78 nice Highway, but seems like it is crawling with troopers but I have to admit i barely see them and my radar barely goes off for a main highway like I78 at least on the east side.
