This graf is from an article on trying to be a "hypermiler" in a Honda 
Insight -- in Atlanta:

"The speed thing was especially a problem for us, because we conducted 
this test in Atlanta, where the speed limit is 55 miles per hour – a 
number we decided to stay close to for efficiency purposes. Unfortunately, 
no one in Atlanta goes 55 miles per hour. Little old ladies don't go 55. 
Church vans don't go 55. Even an illegal immigrant driving a stolen car 
with a trunk full of cocaine and human body parts would be pushing 70. 
And no one would give him a second look."
