Can't drive 55?

You might want to move to New York:
Groninger says state law lists only six municipal locations that require advance notice of defects: sidewalks, crosswalks, streets, highways, bridges and culverts.

Four judges say this parking lot serves the "functional purpose" of a highway, "open to the use of the public for purposes of vehicular travel."
I'll leave it up to you to click on the link, but the ruling basically means that you can legally* drive around New York's parking lots at about 65 MPH.

*I should note here that I am not an attorney licensed by the New York State Bar Association or any other state Bar Association, for that matter. I do not even play a lawyer on TV. Any legal advice followed as a result of advice offered here is an attempt at internet comedy, not actual lawyer stuff.
