This one is easy so I'm going to need the exact location and road.
I am guessing this is somewhere in the Northeast or Midwest?

Its in the Midwest on a major interstate.... (hint, the skyline).

Note: Maybe there should be two different guess the highway threads one for Europe and Asia 'the old world' and one for the Americas, Australia and New Zealand 'the new world'. So there wouldn't be all this posting on top of each other.

Guess the city image of July 16, 2011 is more or less a guess highway style. Have you guessed it? I did

We didn't have a problem with "posting on top of each other" until a few days ago.
I'd prefer to keep it a single contest, if we could figure out a fair way of getting it orderly again. Just need to set, or reiterate, a few rules. I'd suggest, off the top of my head, these:

1. The person who posted a photo needs to check back as often as possible (at the very least not wait more than 24 hours between checks) to see if someone's guessed right.
2. ONLY the person who posted can say whether anyone's right or not. In other words, don't say - even if you're absolutely sure - your photo's here so I'm posting this one.
3. If more than one person's right, the one who was first is the winner. But the poster has the discretion to say (as I did with my last one) that so-and-so was more specific and therefore won.
4. The winner has 24 hours to post a photo. No one else does anything until he or she does. After 24 hours, it's open to someone else to post something.

Make sense?

We've done that one, on another thread. It's fictitious (photoshopped and completely implausible for any number of reasons).

I agree, but with one exception: rule #2: if someone is absolutely sure that he is right and he brings evidence (for example a google streetview link from that area) he can be considered the winner and he may post the next one
