Define "Open Road" ---Freeway/Interstate --- 80mph (+/-)

Residential Streets - typically within 3-5 mph or AT Posted Speed Limit.

On Freeway/Interstate all would probably apply

1-Slightly faster than the speed limit
2-The highest speed that feels safe
3-As fast as I can (safely accomplish)

The most efficient reasonable speed. Driving slower on the highways has helped me save a lot of gas.

Slightly faster than the speed limit because many drivers go as fast as they can.

I stay within the Speed Limit. I do not want a ticket nor do I want to speed. I want to make life safe for me and others on the road!
