Travelling to Midwest for Holidays (MD, PA, W. Va portion)

I am going to Rock Island, Ill for Thanksgiving possibly and would like info on speed traps or where to be more vigilant. I know don't speed and I won't have to worry about tix.
My route as it applies to this regional forum:
MD: 270 to 70 to 68 into W. Va
W. Va: 68 to 79 into PA
PA: 79 to 70 into back into W. Va to OH (I could also take 70 out of MD to PA Turnpike @ Breezewood. Take PA TP to W. Va then OH.

For the curious the rest of the trip will take me through Columbus to Indianapolis on 70. Then on 74 in Indiana and Illinois to 80.

If you think taking through PA 76 to 80 all the way across is better, let me know. I did both on google maps and the time diff is minimal. The only diff is $25 in tolls.

I've driven that same route to OH many times and its fine. rarely see any cops on any of those roads, although the PA turnpike has some. never really had any traffic either except one year coming back from Thanksgiving on Rt 70 b/c of an accident.
