fast commute at night

Everyone has that one road they trust. The road where traffic is light and speeds are high. Unfortunately, such roads are exceptions to the norm. Often, we're stuck taking routes where the average speeds are slower than the posted limit. Ever wondered which American roads are the best in terms of average speed? Forbes put together a list of five routes that it feels are the fastest.

5. Arizona State Route 77 – 4.8 miles long, average speed of fastest five percent is 81 miles per hour.

4. Eastbound MI-5 Michigan Highway – 4.9 miles long, average speed of fastest five percent is 81 miles per hour.

3. California State Route 73 – 14.8 miles long, average speed of fastest five percent is 81 miles per hour.

2. Oklahoma State Highway 33 – 24 miles long, average speed of fastest five percent is 83 miles per hour.

1. Northbound Arizona State Route 79 – 17.6 miles long, average speed of fastest five percent is 88 miles per hour.

These are major routes with traffic that tends to run quite a bit more quickly than the surrounding roadways. Did Forbes get it right or are there some roads you know of that they might have missed? Sound off in the comments.
