I have a 500 mile trip home from school, i average 5 and 1/2 to 6 hours. (you do the math). I'm pretty consistantly 95-100 mph on 55,65, and 70mph roads. I have 1 ticket i got for goin 52 in a 25, but he wrote me up for 5 over and i went to court and got the points off. Generally im at least 15 over. The speed limits could be SO much higher in a lot of places and still be safe. I count on my radar detector to keep me safe (it has more then paid for itself at this point)

I was following a guy home from school who had a Bonneville. He was going to fast for my liking. I wanted to cruise with him, but I didn't wanna go that fast. I don't see the point of it.

Almost 60 in a 40 zone. I just don't like going that fast.

Cops are dicks here. So I don't speed at all, but thats alright they still pull you over. Back in Feb, heading back from MPLS with a buddy and a State Super Trooper pulls me over(after following me for five or six miles) and gives me a long winded speech about my headlights. I didnt argue with him so I could just get going, so he gives me a written warning. When I get home and look at the thing he put me down for doing 62 in a 55!
So on Monday I grabbed my friend and went to the local State Patrol building and got a formal apology for being inconvenienced.
