I cruised at 100+MPH and would start to slow down coming up on traffic, only to have them all move over as I came up. That was great. On the back roads, very little traffic, and some incredibly windy sections especially near the coast. Cops are also there for safety, not revenue generation - only saw 2 on the Autostrada, and passed each of them at 160-170 km/hr without even a glance.
