Lowell Snohomish River Road between Everett, WA and Snohomish is an absolutely gorgeous stretch of country road where one can, in places, enjoy driving at higher than posted speeds without endangering the public. No cross roads, no drive ways. Snohomish River on your right. BNSF tracks parallell close on your left.

The point is, irrespective of the technicalities of the law, there are places where you can touch 120 and it's not terribly reckless to do so. Conversely, there are places where 30 is entirely irresponsible.
You can't be serious. I've been driving that road off and on since the 1970's and it's always a good place to slow down, if you know what I mean.
