    Here in Brazil they have radar that takes a snapshot of your plate if you go over the posted speed limit. However, in most towns there are these "speedbumps" on steroids called lombadas. They will take out your front axel if you go too fast!

    US Highway Speed Limits vary much more than the graphic indicates. 70 mph / 113 kph is much more common than 80 / 129, and many states limit speed to 75 / 120 but there are states that limit speed to as little as 65 / 105.

    Try driving on any motorway at 130 kph, in any state in Australia (except the Northern Territory that has sections at 130kph) and you will most probably lose your license or/and cop a massive fine. The max motorway speed limit is 110kph on the few stretches that have it (the norm is 100kph). And watch NSW, where there is a strange variable speed limit on most motorways and national roads.
