There's a stretch near our house that's like that. A divided 4-lane road that could easily handle a 45mph speed limit. Problem is that it's lined with houses on both sides so you've got lots of driveways, kids, etc. Speed limit is 30mph, as it should be. It sure is hard slowing down for that stretch, though. Cross an intercection at either end and you no longer have the houses on each side and you're back up to a 40mph limit.
