How fast do you drive on the freeway? honest...

Coming home tonight, I was thinking that I'm actually speeding on the freeway when traffic is NOT heavy, otherwise I behaive myself :angel:

Let's start with the fact that it isn't the same speeding on the freeway than doing it on your neighborhood streets or even on the freeway during heavy traffic... spineyes I guess that's the difference between and [color:"gray"] should I say "criminal"?[/color] driver. Besides on the street there's more chance to get pulled over... rolleyes

I've noticed that people drive on the freeway(65mph) at 75mph, in average 10 miles over the speed limit.

my average it's 85-90 sometimes 95

[i]BTW I forgot to mention that I got 2 speeding tickes, the 1st 3 years ago (66 in 45) and the 2nd last september (in Las Vegas)(92 in 75-caught by aircraft radar lol-) goodtimes
Both I went to traffic school rolleyes
Now my record is clean grin

Under normal circumstances, I drive as fast as possible without dipping. If that's 65 or 85, it's still usually the speed I travel.

Then there are times like today. Pissed off and driving home from SD... traffic was going 90 and I was dipping to go 105 rofl

During the daytime, I do like everyone else - keep about 10km/h above the speedlimit.

If I get the urge to drive like a total a-hole, then I don't go out like before 1 in the morning/night, when there's almost no traffic. I don't ever want to have to explain to some one that I killed someone in their family just because I felt the urge to drive fast. So whenever there are other cars around, I keep my sanity hat on. But when there are no other cars around, I just loose my mind and floor it. If I fuck up, it's all on me - and that's the only way I want it.

It's the same if I have passengers in my car. Girls especially like to drive fast. But I never do it with some one else in the car.

Here in Atlanta the interstate Speed limit varies between 55, 65, and 70...but everyone usually drives between 75 and 80 mph...the cops won't even pull you over until you break 80 mph...even if you are on one of the interstates where a 55 mph sign is posted

Depends how traffic looks, usually about 80-90 if traffic is flowing...on the way home from Tucson once... the needle was on the 140 mark...was lucky no cops were around. If I am not sure of my surroundings or if a cop's nearby, I'll only do like almost 5 over.

90-110 on clear days. Here in Arkansas, the line of sight goes for miles. Overpasses are the only cover troopers use for shooting radar. I cruse from overpass to overpass. 80 at night.

I have noticed that if you approch light traffic at 110 they tend to make way!


City driving is a different story! I stay 5 below the posted limit to keep the 5-O off my back! I'm paranoid about little kids and people riding bikes. They scare me more than cops!

it all depends on what kind of mood in.. or whether or not i'm trying to get somewhere

if i'm not on a time limit i usually go 5-10 miles over the speed limit

if i'm sick of driving or want to drive fast or on a time limit i usually go somewhere between 80 and 115...

i try not to go too fast in my celica though cause if i wreck it... it's not gonna get molded again... so i'd be screwed...

usually five over traffic but minimum of five over speed limit.

also depends on the highway.

in mass rt2 i go +5 most the way but in certain areas i go 80. i91 i go 80 usually and more on straight aways. i290/i190 i go any speed i want ('cause i know where the staties hide). i495/i90 it's 85.

in nh, i'm more cautious 'cause i am less familiar with the highways and only do like +5 to +10. in ct i just go with traffic.

I try to keep it below 80, as a rule, just to stay out of trouble. Occasionally I'll put on a quick burst of speed to get away from a big knot of traffic though.

I do 70-80 in 55-65 mph zone, but I do have a 5 mile stretch that I get to 90 - 110 every day unless it's foggy.
I drive slower at night, unless somebody else is doing 100 with no oncoming trafic.
My eyes are better than my radar detector, that's why I slow down at night.
