After making this trip several times by myself and countless times with family and friends under a variety of circumstances and vehicles ranging from sports cars to moving vans, I've decided to post my impressions about it. They may perhaps be of service to someone, and at least entertaining to others.
New York: danger - too many squad cars (which is probably why their taxes are so high).
Maryland: moderately safe.
West VA: moderately safe.
Virginia: danger - speed traps, unmarked cars, motion cameras, (although I'm pretty sure the "Aircraft" that they constantly threaten will enforce the speed limit don't really exist).
Georgia: You might as well just shoot yourself now and get it over with.
Florida: moderately safe. Enough squad cars, but the general traffic tends to move 15 to 20 over the speed limit, so just stick with the herd.
