It's not illegal where I live to go 5 over the limit. You're supposed to have that leeway to pass someone. So usually I'm 5-10 over.

But I also have a lead foot when I've got the music pumping at 4am getting off work sometimes, so I've got my fair share of tickets. Sometimes the things you do to stay awake get you punished, haha

90+ on the interstate, think i've pushed like 110 once. Speed limit ranges from 65-75 (which is annoying dumb and stupid btw). I don't like the idea of speed limits on interstates and maybe highways.

Everyone in my neighborhood hates the people that just drive as fast as they want whenever (its a 25 limit and I've seen people drive well over 40) but god forbid we have someone patrol the neighborhood. I usually prefer to just ride the hills down, or use cruise control on 25.

My general area will see me go either 45 (the speed limit) or 60, ultimately comes down to how much i'm paying attention. I usually rely on the cars in front of me to slow me down though.

But who drives exactly the speed limit in the left-most lane on the highway? Weren't we all taught that it's supposed to be the fast/passing lane?

And the thing about school areas, at least in NC, it only pertains to certain times of day based on when the schools are letting in or letting out. Not like anyone walks to school anyway, seems a bit unnecessary, and (imo) there should be stop lights where the school buses drive out, so why bother?

I've been a driver for 6.5 years and not been ticketted. You could say I'm a role model.

I speed like crazy. Generally it's just 5 over, but often times its 10-15 over. And on country roads around me, cops can really only park themselves at the ends of the road, so I'll often drive home on those roads at 70-80 miles an hour. One time I pushed 90.

90 mph in a nissan versa is about as fast as you want to go. the car tries to leave the ground.
105 in a toyota yaris 2011. very stable at that speed. taching in the 5k area.

Only driving 5 miles over is asking to have some jerkass riding your bumper where I live -_-*


the same for most places

they are strict on school zones and residential areas

the i think on highway for every 5mph over 55mph your MPG will drop by 2-3mpg ? more gas wasted at high speed

I try very hard to stay within the maximum speed limit, even when everyone else is above it.

I usually go about 5 over and nothing more since my car isn't really suited for speed, but I have gone about 90-100 on my way to Los Angeles (using my mom's car haha). That's about the only time I'll really allow myself to not care for the speed limit since literally nobody follows it on the interstate.

In neighborhoods and school zones I do follow the limit even if it annoys everyone else. Don't want to risk it in those areas.

5 miles lmao, where I live we all drive 20-30 miles over the limit, my state is practically going bankrupt and basically can't afford to police the highway anymore. I think I've seen like 2 state cops in my last 6 months of driving.

Heck there are days I'm going like 80-85 mph and I'm easily one of the slowest drivers, at least on one of the interstates, the other one there is too much traffic to break 65 anyway.
I drive under the speed limit on local roads of course, hey I'm trying

Legally you can get a ticket for driving just 1 mile over the speed limit. but almost no one is going to waste time on a ticket that is sure to be thrown out if contested.



Disagree, have you driven in Massachusetts? They ticket out-of-staters all the time for that, especially on rural roads in the middle of nowhere. I drive like 5mph under the limit when I'm up that way, easily my least favorite state to drive in. They know most people won't drive back to fight it in court.

this is today

State statistics show increase in citations for speed, aggressive driving
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKP3WGqIyug

so criminal speeding is 20+ mph over the speed limit (i thought it was 25+mph)

1 mile over the speed limit ? i doubt it.. 100% of people are driving at least 1 mph... it looks like the state needs more money..
