Default Who'* the highest speeder?

Just wondering if anyone else out their speeds like I do. I generally speed at least 10-15 mph over the posted speed limit. Can't wait to see how others speed.

I did 110 in front of a County Sheriff. Two lane highway in northern MN, passing each other. By the time he stopped and got the radar up I was doing 55 (the speed limit) right on the nose and passing him. Since he couldn't "tag me", he just let me keep going, but he knew....

I guess you can guess which one I voted for....hehe

Consistently? I do exactly 5 over. On the other hand, i've done up to 120 in a 70, and 100 in a 55.

Yes I've been in the triple digits, but I'm talking in everyday driving how much do you speed. I'm a big speeder runs in the family tho, average of 10-15mph over. I guess I worded the question wrong. But what do you guys speed in everyday driving?

I usually do 10 over in any zone. Cept the hwys, 140 km/h if I can depending on traffic, sometimes 160 km/h

Once I got a ticket for doin 82 in a 50 hahaha....

Remember..all km/h!!!

60 mph = 100 km/h

I have done 140-145 MPH(not sure cause the speedo only went to 140) in a 70 with a '94 Camaro Z28 following me the whole time, only took me 4 minutes to get to my exit when it usually takes 8-10

Welcome aboard.. glad to have you join us... it would be nice however when you have some time to fill in your signiture so later on if you have any questions ( which we all do ) we can easily help identify your car year and model.. hee hee.. that is normally Wills task to bug people about their sigs but he'* right now and Jr is on his star.

Back to topic

I usually do 120 130kmh and at least 10 kmh over in.. the only time I speed more is when some lil Punk *** Rice is in front of me.. I push him a lil.. then he goes speedin off.. and I keep a nice gap in between us and pick up speed way above speed limit to match. The reason why I instigate Rice to drive fast is cause they usually do.. and the gap is usually for when the cops hide in a blind spot ( speed trap ) and by the time they pull out to catch that lil bugger for speeding.. I would see him/her and have enough time to slow down.. this has saved me countless of times and have yet to receive a speeding ticket with this trick ( knock on wood ).. would've been nailed for a 150kmh on a 60 zone on a buzz cruise up to Orangeville early last summer if not for the Civic/Accord.. they all look the same to me ( CRAP ) that I tailgated till he sped up.. hee hee..it always reminds me of the rabbit and the turtle.. but this turtle don't get the speedin ticket..hee hee... and who has the last laugh when they're pulled over by the cop and given the ticket.. hee hee.. sometimes it'* worth not racing everyone
