I am pretty sure i was in Montana and in a 35mph limit. Perhaps there are some roads with no speed restrictions, but certainly not all of them are that way. [/b]
it may just be highways ... but i remember reading something about it because the feds were mad at them over the no-speed-limit and they threatened to withhold federal highway funds, similar to DC's defiance of the national 21-to-drink law in the 80s ... speaking of which, don't you think it would have been an easy choice to go to a DC school in the early 80s when you could drink here and nowhere else in the country (save LA)? [/b]
i believe montana has a safe and prudent policy for the interstate, during the day.  also, the $5 fine, i think, is for wasting gasoline (a car burns more gasoline at higher speeds, blah blah blah), not for speeding.  their fine for speeding used to be $20, pay on the spot.

TROOPER
                You're required to display
                temporary tags, either in the
                plate area or taped inside the
                back window.
 
                          CARL
                Certainly -
 
                          TROOPER
                Can I see your license and
                registration please?
 
                          CARL
                Certainly.
 
 He reaches for his wallet.
 
                          CARL
                ...  I was gonna tape up the
                temporary tag, ya know, to be
                in full compliance, but it, uh,
                it, uh ... must a slipped my
                mind...
 
 He extends his wallet toward the trooper, a folded fifty-
 dollar bill protruding from it.
 
                          CARL
                ...  So maybe the best thing
                would be to take care of that,
                right here in Brainerd.
 
                          TROOPER
                What's this, sir?
 
                          CARL
                That's my license and regis-
                tration.  I wanna be in
                compliance.
 
 He forces a laugh.
 
                          CARL
                ...  I was just thinking I could
                take care of it right here.  In
                Brainerd.
 
 The policeman thoughtfully pats the fifty into the billfold and hands the billfold back into the car.

DC may have been a bit of a hold-out, but they weren't alone.  You could drink in Virginia at 19 until the mid 80's.  NY didn't change their laws until around that time too.
