Title says it all.
In a residential area, I go no faster than 1 MPH over the speed limit, but, sometimes 15-20 MPH in some of the narrow residential streets in the area with lots of bicycles, even if the limit is 25-30. I go the speed limit or slightly faster on expressways if the flow of traffic is fast. I generally don't drive faster than 65 ever.
But, I don't care that much how fast you go, as long as you follow 2-3 seconds behind. I always slow down for tailgaters, because if they are following too closely, I need more room to stop gently.
If the road traffic conditions allow it then at the speed limit.
Normally travel ~5 mph above the speed limit.
5-10 above on FWys, 5 above at the most on the streets.
5 to 10 is about what I tend to peg out at, too. It's not like I'm doing it for any particular reason. I drive at whatever speed I feel comfortable going at. From my perspective, I'm not going too fast, and I'm not going too slow.
It's just weird that that perfectly comfortable clip almost always seems to be about 5 to 10 miles over the limit no matter where I'm at.
I'm probably about the same in that regard, yet someone always passes and pulls just in front of me. I hate that.
You know this conversation is gonna lead to the inevitable gripe fest over tailgaters, right?
Blah I probably should have considered.
Growing up in am aggressive driving region, dad's rule of thumb to avoid tickets: never go more than 9mph over the posted limit. And sure enough, whenever I got a ticket, I had broken the rule. These days, driving is much less hectic and I'm at or under the limit most of the time, in most conditions.
5 to 10 over always on the freeway. Speed limit otherwise.
I usually drive at 70-80 mph on the highways and pretty much the speed limit around town.
Something tells me this thread will never approach the greatness of this one.
I go about 10-14mph over posted limit.
Same for me. I just try not to be the fastest person on the road when on the highway.
At the speed limit or 5 over on normal streets and 5-15 over on the highway
About 5 over on surface streets, 10 on the highway, unless I'm within the St. Louis city proper then it's more like 15 over because the STLPD doesn't pull people over for speeding, they have real crimes to deal with.
Of course, all depends on road conditions and traffic. I don't do anything wreckless.
On limited access highways...as much as it takes to get to 80-85mph. This, of course, is modified based on weather, road conditions, and traffic.
City streets and small state roads, about 5 mph over the limit...no more.
Right lane at 5 to 7 below on the interstates. 2 or 3 under elsewhere.
I usually drive 5 mph over the speed limit on highways, and the speed limit everywhere else.
what speed limit?
Ye Old Term for that is....Bear Bait!
On the highway, I go as fast as the car in front of me. On surface streets, safe & sane is the rule.
Local cops let you get away with <10kph over, except in school zones, so that's what I follow.
Highway speed here is 100kph, but most do >110 <120. I never go above 120 as I've been "told" that 123 is the threshold of pain.
Oh, 50 over and they take your license, and your vehicle.
But you get a free ride home.
Exactly this. Up to 10kph over has always been fine for me, though I have pushed to 20 over in areas where I know I can.
Going 120 on our highways is pretty standard but most don't go higher unless they're out of the city
I've never had a ticket either, but I won't recommend speeding to anyone.
Up to about 50mph over on a motorway. Often a lot less than it in a village.
