Default Re: How much over the limit do you speed?

tags are the bomb

0-10 mph over is always a safe play in TX - the ones going 15 over get the tickets. In central TX - not as fast as PA , our speed limit is 80, so you can do close to 90 without an issue.

Still too slow for the bunkbeds doe

Always follow along with traffic.

By myself, maybe 3 over. Following a group of cars or a police car, match their speed

I honestly dont find myself doing much more than 8-10 over these days unless itís been more than a couple of months since my last track day. Then It starts to creep up..

I gotta admit after reading all the crap people were giving you in your i3 thread, I laughed way too hard when OP set "Obioban" as an option here.

I usually cruise along in the middle lane, following traffic, which is usually about 5 over.

Now that I have a commute a couple times a week (I primarily work from home), I find myself doing 10-15 over when passing in the left lane.

5-10 for me, but I'm boring. Since I work from home I have no commute, so I never really feel pressure to get somewhere when I'm driving, which I like. In the rare case where I'm making a significant drive, going any faster just doesn't seem worth it. Highways around here are usually crowded (with idiots), cops are frequent enough and some of the surfaces are total crap. And what am I gaining? A few minutes maybe?

I also grew up in VA, so maybe it's in my DNA to not go over 79

This is true, driving on track makes roads so boring I have no desire to push it in any way.
