So I’m driving on the Garden State Parkway over the weekend and I’m driving around 75 MPH and people are practically running me off the road! So I’d like to know, "what is the REAL speed limit on the Garden State Parkway?"

The posted speed limit is 65, but if you go 65 on the Garden State Parkway, you may end up with someone’s front end on your back seat.

No one goes 65. Ok, maybe a few... but everyone is giving them the stink eye.

So where do we stand? How fast is too fast? It is frustrating when you are traveling above 65 and still people are riding right up on you. What is the speed where New Jersey State Troopers will start pulling drivers over? Is it 76 miles per hour or 80?

Many times on my drive from Long Branch to Tuckerton, I am doing around 75 MPH and a car passes me like I’m standing still. This car in seconds is almost out of sight. How fast is this person going?

So I have a few questions:

  • So what is the real speed limit on the Garden State Parkway?
  • What is too fast?
  • What is the speed when NJ State Troopers begin pulling you over?
  • Have you been passed by the person who thinks they are on the autobahn?

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
