And the best is, the first time I went up there about two months ago I got pulled over like 30 seconds after getting off the exit because it takes you right into the village and the speed limit drops to 30 MPH without a warning, so I got caught doing 48 in a 30.
Being from Long Island, the landscape on Route 17 drives me nuts. Nothing but hills, mountains and deer.
I've gotten two speeding tickets in my three years of using route 17 for school. The limit goes back and forth from 65 to 55 at least a dozen times in the five hour trip. Both tickets were in Sullivan County too far away from home and school to go to court and get the ticket reduced.
