The minimum speed on Interstate highways is?
The minimum speed on major routes (if any) varies by state. As an example, in many jurisdictions the minimum speed on a 65 MPH Interstate is 45MPH.
Most states have a catch-all rule that states you can be ticketed for driving at any speed that is so slow as to impede the flow of traffic.

Hawaii has three interstates - H1, H2, and H3 - which connectimportant military facilities on the island of Oahu. The real name of the interstate highway system is "The Dwight D.Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways", theDefense part of this name means they are intended prima…rily as Military Highways for the transportation of militaryequipment and troops in times of war and other emergency. Thereforesuch highways do not actually have to be "interstate" if they servea valid "military" purpose. In fact many of the specifications forthese highways derive directly from military equipment in the USinventory during the 1950s, when the system was in planning (e.g.the minimum clearance on overpasses comes from the height of the280mm M65 Atomic Cannon the largest Army artillery piece ever made- in service from 1953 to 1963 it could fire a shell with a 15kiloton yield about 20 miles).

Rules I found online say 3m or 10ft with 9m or 30ft between. However, when I used to paint them with the highway dept in 1971 the length was 15 ft with 45 ft between. This appears to have changed. But you can measure the distance of the highway in miles or killometers!
It depends on the state since each states sets their own speed limits, both max/min. Added: Usually the minimum speed is set at 45 mph.

The Interstate Highway System was authorized by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956 - popularly known as the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act of 1956 - on June 29
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUDCD) does not indicate a regulation for the length of the lines but it does give this guide. . Guidance: Broken lines should consist of 3 m (10 ft) line segments and 9 m (30 ft) g…aps, or dimensions in a similar ratio of line segments to gaps as appropriate for traffic speeds and need for delineation.. Option: A dotted line for line extensions may consist of 0.6 m (2 ft) line segments and 0.6 m (2 ft) to 1.8 m (6 ft) gaps. A dotted line for lane drop/add markings may consist of 0.9 m (3 ft) line segments and 2.7 m (9 ft) gaps. ( Full Answer )

\nWith the increase of autos in the 1950s, the demand for good quality roads increased. The federal government passed the Interstate Highway Act, 1956, pumping $1 billion a year into the construction of roads. By 1960, $2.9 billion was being used a year. The construction encouraged urban sprawl, as …more people could now live in the suburbs and drive the freeways into the cities for work. But it also marked the beginning of the end to the city as a livable location. The middle class left the city to live in the suburbs, urban neighborhoods were split into isolated residential islands walled off from each other by concrete abutments of the freeways. Cars clogged the roads and parking spaces of every major city. Noise and pollution increased in cities and the middle class tax base caused a decay in the necessary city services. Crime increased. Schools were neglected. Health care could not afford to keep up its services. By the 1960s, major department stores and light industries left the cities and relocated in shopping malls and centers in the suburbs, taking jobs with them and further decreasing the tax base for the city.

Answering this might be splitting hairs: The most traveled interstates in the US will be: I-40 from Wilmington, NC to Barstow, CA. I-70 from Baltimore, MD to Sulfurdale, UT. I-80 from Ridgefield Park, NJ to San Fransisco, CA. I-90 from Boston, MA to Seattle, WA. By the location and the cities the…y pass through, I-40 and I-80 are likely to have the greatest volume of year round traffic. ( Full Answer )
One major effect of the interstate highway system was it made traveling to land and businesses faster and easier, and this cut down on gas prices so it also made traveling cheaper.

What is the posted speed limit on US highway 395 from Interstate 15 in Victorville to Interstate 80 in Reno Nevada?
It is 65mph most of the way but once you get up into towns such asLone Pine, Big Pine, Independence, etc the speed limit will drop to35-45mph thru the towns. Lots of speed traps north of Lone Pine andespecially closer to Bishop. Keep it below 75mph in the 65mph zonesand you should be fine. 80+ will …get you pulled over every time ( Full Answer )
I-95 doesn't go through Wisconsin at any point. The closest thing you'd have to a direct road leading to I-95 would be I-94, which merges with I-90 to become I-90/94 in Illinois, then separates again into I-90 and I-94. At the point of separation, you'd want to remain on I-90, which will merge into …I-80 to become I-80/90. When I-80 and I-90 separate, you could either take I-90 to merge into I-95 in Boston, or I-80 to merge into I-95 in the NYC Metropolitan area. However, if you were heading to points south of those locations, there would certainly be better routes to take to get there. ( Full Answer )
Obviously the purpose was to build a system of good interstate highways. National defense- the ability to move military supplies and personnel quickly- played a role in justifying the program.
people moved their becuase more room and space. With the interstate highways made it easier to get back and forth places like jobs,malls, and resraunts.
Yes, because the whole name is Interstate Highways. Actually the whole name is The NationalDefense and Interstate Highway System as their originalpurpose was to facilitate movement of troops, material, andequipment for the US military in time of war. The general publicgets the benefit of their …use only when the military does notrequire them (which so far has been all the time). Many of the specifications of roads, shoulders, bridge clearances,etc. come directly from the equipment used by the US Army when thesystem was first authorized in the 1950s. One example is theminimum clearance for overpasses above an interstate, this wasbased on the 12.2 foot height of the 280 mm M-65 AtomicCannon (the first nuclear capable artillery piece the US had,it fired a W9 shell with a 15 kiloton yield or later a W19 shellwith a 15 to 20 kiloton yield), this gun was removed from servicein 1963 as better nuclear shells had been developed for smallerstandard artillery pieces (which were easier to move and setup) bythen.

Is itconstitutional for Congress to passed a law requiring state governments to reduce the speed limits on interstate highways to 55 miles per hour?
The task of answering that question is the job of the Supreme Court. In order to have them think about the question and produce an official answer, somebody has to bring the case to the Court, and claim that Congress doesn't have that right. Without a case being filed, the Supreme Court doesn'…t do anything with the question, and the answer remains a matter of opinion and conjecture to most, while to others it constitutes a clear example of fascist power-grab. Added: The matter was never tested in court - the Feds "persuaded" the states to lower the speed limit with the not-so-veiled threat of withholding their federal highway funds. ( Full Answer )
That varies by state. I know in Raleigh, it's 65 MPH on I-40, and 60 MPH for most of the I-440 beltline. I can't be 100% certain about this, but I believe the lowest speed limit I've ever seen on an Interstate Highway (other than in a construction zone) was 50 MPH.

The last interstate highway was completed in 1993 in Los Angeles. The Century Freeway, Interstate 105, was completed after 37 years of construction. The route connects Los Angeles International Airport with Interstates 405, 110, 710, and 605.
Laws on this vary by jurisdiction. In order to answer this, we'dhave to know WHERE you're referring to.
An interstate sign could be classified by polygon if allowed, since it has more than 3 sides, but since they are not equal, an interstate sign is technically not a polygon. If you ask an expert this same question, they would probably say "no". Hope this helps.

Most of the time, if you're driving below the speed limit, you are to remain in that right hand lane. Now there are some places where they do place a minimum speed in the left lane which is below the speed limit. On I25, between Castle Rock and Denver, CO, there are signs indicating a minimum speed …limit of 55 MPH in the left lane while the actual speed limit of the road is 65. Even in these instances, it's ill advised. If you're not doing the speed limit, you really need to stay in the right lane. The minimum speed on Interstate Highways is posted at 45 MPH. Vehicles incapable of travelling at least that minimum speed must not travel on the interstate highway system, or they must be granted a special-use permit to travel on them. The right hand lanes are reserved for slower moving vehicles and the outside (or where they exist, center lanes) are reserved for traffic which is moving at a legal speed faster than the right lane traffic, or are used when 'passing' slower moving vehicles. Most Interstates have a posted maximum speed at which traffic may move, but on the occasion of passing slower moving vehicles may momentarily exceed when making a 'passing' maneuver. Another Perspective Actually, in many states the left hand lane is not governed by a "minimum speed". It is to be used only for passing . You cannot coast in that lane and hold up other cars that want to pass. In Massachusetts many motorists monopolize the left lane thinking that they can coast at the posted speed limit and control everyone else's speed. They can't. If you're not passing other, slower moving cars, then you need to pull over to the right lane. The left land is for passing and you can be stopped and cited by police for misusing the left lane.

What is the maximum speed limit for a school bus when not on an interstate or federal or state highway?
Typically, it'll be whatever the speed limit of that road is. If there are specific laws on the subject, it'll be a matter of state law, not the FMCSR. You'd need to specify a state for a more accurate answer.
Highways are roads that are usually maintained by the local government (or even the state - never federal) but the funding for the highway can come from the federal government. State highways never cross state lines. US highways do cross state lines. US highways were established to create paths for …travel where the road number does not change from state to state. This was done to make interstate travel easier and was mandated by congress in the 1930s if memory serves me correctly. Freeway is a road that has NEVER been a toll road and NEVER will be. Interstate - highway that crosses state lines and is not a US highway. This is a seperate act of congress and was established in the 1950s to create highways that were limited access and were designed for those traveling long distances on a regular basis. EDIT*** I looked at the definitions for freeway, expressway (you didn't ask, but I looked anyhow), etc. and it seems as though there is a small bit of confusion relating to this specific definition of the word freeway. True, the answer below does appear to be factual, but I do seem to recall a state that has designated a definition of a freeway as the one I provided, but I am unable to find the site that stated this (I have seen this and not in a dream). For all intents and purposes however, it appears as though the most common definition for a freeway is a limited access, divided highway. It also appears that a highway is an undivided road (based on the definition of the other terms). In the US, it's a matter of who pays for them. The federal government pays for the interstate highways. They can look very similar, e.g., both can have ramps for heavy traffic. From the source links: The Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways, commonly called the Interstate Highway System or Interstate Freeway System, and colloquially referred to as "the Interstate", is a network of limited-access roadways (also called freeways, highways, or expressways) in the United States. It is named for President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who championed its formation. As of 2006, the system has a total length of 46,876 miles (75,440 km). The Interstate Highway System is a subsystem of the National Highway System. The National Highway System (NHS) of the United States comprises approximately 160,000 miles (256,000 kilometers) of roadway, including the Interstate Highway System and other roads, which are important to the nation's economy, defense, and mobility. It is the world's longest highway system. The system, which was developed by the United States Department of Transportationin cooperation with the states, local officials, and metropolitan planning organizations was approved by the United States Congress in 1995. It encourages individual states to focus on strategic routes support these with federal funds where the States can incorporate design and construction improvements that address their traffic needs safely and efficiently. .
