Just kidding, it's the same way in CT. Go with the flow or get pushed off the road.
Yea, I'm actually in CT, but driving in Mass can be insane. It leaves an impression. I think I was on I-495 a while ago, and I was going 70ish and being passed by people obviously going 80 or better. So I kicked it up to 80 and was STILL being passed, but at least I didn't feel like a gimpy fish about to get picked out of the school. Same thing happens on a lot of highways, I'm sure, but Mass always frightens me. In CT, I typically stay east of Hartford on I-84. That's comparatively a pretty timid stretch of highway.

Dangerous? Hell yea. But like you said, if you're going to go 65 on some of these highways, you'd best be in a semi or something that is very easily noticed.
