Surprisingly I actually go under the speed limit or at the speed limit, not because I'm a terrible driver or afraid. Just because I like to cruise around and listen to the sound of my engine, no wide open throttle, no accelerating real fast well unless I'm getting onto the freeway or highway. I just enjoy my drive, I'm not in any hurry to get anywhere, so I go under or at the speed limit. Now if I'm working that's a whole different story. I usually speed when I'm working.

I pretty much always drive the speed limit, because I believe in driving safely and not some crazed "Only I'm important" kind of driver. I sometimes feel like I'm the only person where I live that actually drives the speed limit, because it seems like most everyone always drives at least 10mph+ over the speed limit even in residential areas, so I'm constantly being tailgated. The only time I'll go over is on the freeway, occasionally, and that is 5 over max.

No I have the worst case of lead foot. Average for me is 15 over what the sign says, its a terrible habit but I love to drive so it can't be helped


I love to drive too, but it's people that excessively speed that ruin the fun of driving for me
Try resting only your toes on the pedal, because the whole foot doesn't need to be on it.

I've thought for a long time that the speed limits on the highways were not in sync with what they really should be. Supposedly speed limits are set by traffic engineers after measuring the average speed of motorists on a particular highway. The speed limit is set to that of 85% of drivers on a particular highway, meaning the top 15% are over the limit. I don't know how it is elsewhere, but here in the bay area that certainly isn't true. In particular, nobody slows down from the 65mph limit outside of San Francisco, to the 50mph limit inside (highway 101). I see the speed limit as a problem if it makes the majority into traffic offenders.

So my short answer to the question is yes, I speed. I don't tail gate, I don't drive aggressively, and I don't cut lanes all over the place just to get one or two car lengths ahead (really meaningless over a long drive, and adds considerable risk to your commute).

In town yes I am always within 5 mph of the speed limit, and never over in school zones. On the freeway I usually am within 10-15 mph of the speed limit (which is 65 in my state) if it is safe to do so (clear roads, little traffic, etc.).

I usually drive about 5 miles over--and people fly right past me. I'm always paranoid about getting a ticket. I try not to drive too much over the speed limit so I can keep an eye out for cops and I'd rather not be killed for driving too fast. (Not that I can do much about OTHER driving idiots ) I kinda have a feel where the "speed traps" are in my area and I use extra caution in those areas. I avoid the freeways whenever possible because people REALLY drive like IDIOTS sometimes on there.

In town I drive the speed limit, on the highway I will go about 5 over. On the interstate I'll go 5-15 over depending on where it is, Iowa has pretty predicable cops...

I like to speed, but only because I can control my car well enough when I happen too.

You can also get away with some speeding if a cop thinks you look sweet and give you a break.
