speed limit for me. I have someone in the passenger seat all the time, not to mention, I dont own my car, I dont pay my insurance, and I dont get to control when i drive. That is all up to my parents. Even when I get my regular license, I wont speed, becuase they can still take my car and stop paying my insurance if i get a ticket. Not to mention the cost of the ticket and the danger to me and others that would occur.

On the highway I drive 75-80 with a 65 mph speed limit. I run the gauntlet between Dayton and Cincinnati, ití* about 40 miles between the two, about 3 times a week and I know where to slow down. In town, I try to keep it less than 10 over. There is one suburb around here that you drive 35 in a 35 and not 1 mph over.
