I speed when I know I can get away with it and the conditions are right. Every time I put on Highway Star by Deep Purple I feel the need... for speed.

Fastest ive gone is 180 mph as well and let me tell you: building blocks were being shat the entire time.


i believe you lol, i was with a few of my friends and one of them was driving us in his camaro. he decided to go like 150 down the highway and we were all mildly stoned. scared the shit out of me.

Ohio drivers are the worst. Now I know why.


Alright, not the worst. But just behind Michigan.

I think since cars are getting bigger and have more safety features people feel like they can drive fast because they are in less danger.

I find that speeding in towns/villages/cities is not as big a problem as pedestrians are. I've lost count of the number of people who've stepped out in front of me without looking expecting me to see them and stop. The idea that they might not bee seen never seems to occur to them. There was even one woman who did this while carrying a baby.


Well where Im at now is currently all leveled farmland. The speed limit should be 80 and not 40 lol lucky Texans.
I think city laws and cops are more harsh than rural small town places.

Some of the speed limits are ridiculous, why go 20 mph in a place you could safely go at 30 or 35? On the highway I go max 10 mph over the limit if there is no one around, if there are other cars I usually go at the limit.

Generally, I go about five to ten over. On the freeway, it's fifteen over. Sometimes just ten.


I like driving faster. It's fun.

I've never been pulled over for speeding, and I've never gotten a ticket regardless of the infraction.

750 fatal accidents in IN, 721 in KY, 1020 in OH, 889 in MI.

That was 2011


*those numbers scale pretty well with the amount of fatalities due to drunk driving

I go 5 over in town and at least 5 over on the highways depending on how cop prone the area is. My commute to school is littered with cops who just sit and look for people who speed (literally everyday) so I go 70 at the most to school. Big cities are fun to drive in cuz everybody goes like 90 and it's awesome.

Going the speed limit is for losers.

I don't even mean in terms of accidents, just inconsiderate asshole drivers all together.

No turn signals, cutting you off, ect.

I typically go 10 over the limit. What's stupid is there's people who still hug my tail-end and then pass me at dangerous times.



Although, I get more annoyed by people who go 5-10 under the limit than people who go over.

If all traffic is going more than 15 mph over the limit, you'll get killed if you don't follow along. If you're alone, don't risk it and go too fast. Also, I think you're exaggerating when you say 90% or you don't know what 90% means or the cops in your town are dumb as hell.

I drive daily, on average once a week I will find somebody going the speed limit with me or slower. Literally everybody else passes me.

It might not be 90% all together but it's around 90% of the people I've been around.

Also, I'm pretty sure the cops here are idiots.

In that case, are they really going more than 15 over the limit or are you just going "whoa, that guy was fast! Musta been 20 mph faster than I'm going!". Because you're saying that more people than not should be arrested for reckless driving every time they drive and even the corruptest of law enforcement shouldn't really go for that.

Speedometers can be as much as 10% over your real speed, so it could be that you're just going slower than you think.

It depends on where I'm at. If I'm in my town, I know what I can get a way with and where I can get away with it. If I'm somewhere that I know the cops like to radar, I go the speed limit. If I'm in an unfamiliar town or city, I go the speed limit. On the highway, I usually go between 5 and 10 mph over the speed limit, but sometimes more.

I used to speed from time to time, but now I generally stay within the limit and 5 above, unless I'm in a couple specific places around here that have cops that can pull you over for doing 2 over.

And goddammit, this. It doesn't matter if you want to do 55 while everybody else is doing 70+, just stay in the outside lane.

And please try to go at least 5 under the speed limit on one lane streets when people are behind you. Some people like to use the roads to get places in a timely manner.

Of course you don't find people going the same speed as you. You would you catch up with them (or vice-versa) if they're traveling at the same speed on the same road?
