What is the New York speed limit?
I’m going on a road trip to New York City to visit a friend. After I pick her up, we’re thinking about visiting some of the bigger attractions like the Finger Lakes and Niagara Falls. I just want to know what the speed limit is so I can prepare for the trip—what is the speed limit in New York?
