We are refering to 75mph/70mph/65mph speed limits here. Highway only.


AVERAGE DAILY HIGHWAY DRIVING.




Lets not make this a pissing contest since we are talking about "breaking a law" here.

It really depends on where I"m driving.
In town with a speed limit of 25= 25 from me
in town with a speed limit of 35=35 from me
Open Roads speed limit of 55= 50-65 from me
Highway with speed limit of 65=70-80 from me
Highway with speed limit of 70=75-90 from me.

really depends with me.

i am really religious about the speed limits in residential areas.

35: 35-40 depending on my mood. WILL NOT do more then 45
65: 68-72 might do 75 if i am behind someone
75: 76-80

skool zones: 15 mph: 13-15. wont even hammer the gas until after i exit the zone.

I chose option one.
I engage the cruise control at the speed limit. That way, I'm not going too slow, and not too fast either.

I usually drive between 75 and 78 on the freeway here (limit of 70). Around town I don't go much over the limit, 38 in a 35 or so. Sometimes I might go 60 in a 55, but usually its about 58. Although on Friday when I got out of work I just wanted to get home so I was going 82 and since it was about 11:00 it was dark and there was a state cop following me and I didn't even notice it was a cop for like 5 minutes. I slowed it down a little (had the cruse on) to like 77 or so once I figured out it was, but as soon as I did that he passed me and kept going. I guess he didn't have time to pull me over or something???
