I-94 Raceway, Once You Get Out Of Milwaukee County

Spent the afternoon in Waukesha County and observed, for the umpteenth time, that traffic in the left lane bolts westward averaging 80 mph once you clear Brookfield.

A bit of guesstimating on my part, but I can tell based on my cruise control locked in 68 mph that traffic to my left leaves me in the dust.

Same phenomenon when you head towards Chicago: traffic move along dutifully near the speed limit past the airport, then boom: off to the races.

The word of mouth in this area has always been that speed enforcement in Jefferson County is much more aggressive than in Waukesha, and forget about speeding into Dane County near Madison, but on I-94 in Waukesha County, there seems to be minimal enforcement.

Yup. Sounds to me like the freeways should be widened to accomodate more traffic. Clearly the speeds are not sufficiently fast enough to get people to their destinations in a timely manner.
