Yup it was a bit of a suprise to me in Wyoming this summer - 75 MPH on a curvy road along a river where if it where here or California it would not have been rated any higher than 40 MPH. I thought to myself you have got to be kidding!
As there was no way I was going to do 75 MPH on that road, if someone come up behind me on staight sections I would pull way over so they could see around me and slow down so they could pass - very few people actually passed me. Found it intreasting that most were happy to follow at a more reasonable speed even though there was very little if any on coming traffic and they had lots of chances to pass
What was even more intreasting was in construction zones in Wyoming and Montana (and Idaho?) I recall the speed was 55 or 60 MPH on single lanes with people & equipment working 3' to 4' from you. Not a chance you would have been allowed to do more than 40 MPH here in that situation.
