I always drive the speed the limit or a couple mph UNDER the limit. This is because my license may, or may not, be suspended. :shiftyeyes:

It's kinda fun because people usually tailgate the shit out of me, to which if there are no cops around I drop my speed to about 10 under the limit. (Yup, I'm that guy)

Here in Montreal the speed limits are ridiculous. In urban areas (not necessarily residential), the speed limit is 50 KM/H (31 MPH), which feels slow as fack. I sometimes drive at 65-70 kph when I know it's safe (40-45 mph). And I go around 10-15 mph faster on highways than the speed limit. But I NEVER speed in residential areas where I know kids might be playing, or near schools etc.
#44
I speed almost constantly.


Not to the point of being unsafe, but maybe 10 over the limit most of the time. Slightly more on the highway.

I've also been pulled over for speeding a twice, so there's risk involved.

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.

Driving around New York and Philly is fun and pants shittingly scary at the same same. The Long Island Expressway around New York and I-95 near Philly do like 90-100 during rush hour


I always just go with the flow of traffic though. Those people who swerve in and out of lanes going 20 MPH faster than everyone else can go **** themselves

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.


A few times I've caught myself with a leadfoot on accident, subconsciously adjusting myself closer to the majority of traffic, and I still have most people well passing me when I'm going around 7-10 over.

It is an unwritten law that the speed gauge usually indicates higher speeds than you are actually driving, its severity depending on your speed. Say you're driving 50kmph on the gauge, you'll likely be going 47. At 100kmph, somewhat closer to 93-94ish. That why everyone 'speeds', it's to compensate for that. Or atleast, that's what I'm told by various sources.
#49
I generally do 10-15 over if traffic is moving well. Sometimes the flow of traffic is going like... 20 km/h over on the highway and i have no issues doing that. *shrug*

Um...I just speed because who has time to go the limit?
#52
Not sure how the laws are where you live, but if everyone on the road is speeding, then you should technically be going at the same speed (going with the flow of traffic).
#53
i don't even know why people speed. really, if you're driving 60 miles on a 60 mph road, and you're going 5 over, you're only saving like 5 minutes, and if you're only going like 20 miles you're saving yourself less than 2 minutes lol. i can understand maybe going like 10 over since you save twice that. but i don't think it's worth getting picked up, getting fined, and your insurance going up (or in my case getting in trouble for having no insurance).

people just need to chill and enjoy the ride.

I speed. A lot. If I'm on the highway and traffic's low I'm hardly ever under 90. If I'm late I flirt with 100.

I've been pulled over 7 times (none of these were on the highway) 4 of those were for speeding, and I've gotten zero tickets. It's fun being a white male.

I usually just go 5 over, otherwise I'll end up having to pass everyone, or getting stuck riding someone's ass.

I even go 60 on gravel roads (speed limit is 55), which, while still legal, can get kind of rediculous at times. In fact I almost died last week because someone crested a hill at the same time as me on gravel, and we were a bit close for comfort.
#58
I usually drive within about 5-7 miles of the speed limit. Insurance is high enough as a young driver, and my dad would probably kick me off his insurance if I got a ticket. Also, I have enough problems without a speeding ticket. Also, I don't like dying, and speeding obviously ups those chances. It's different on the highway, though. I usually try to keep it under 75-85, though, all depending on the conditions.

You've only had it for a month.

Give it time.

You'll be speeding like the rest of us.

This, when I passed I was a little pussy bitch with the speed limit now I just view it as a rough guide.

As long as you aren't miles above it most police don't care, I sat in front of a police car doing about 40 in a 30, he was just sat behind me at the same speed.

I was trundling along at 76 today and a panda car cruised passed me doing about 85ish. Didn't bat an eyelid. 85mph is kinda the accepted speed limit.

Unlike most of my friends, I hardly ever speed. Usually I stick to the speed limit, or go around 5 mph over. Freeways are a different story; everyone speeds on those.
#62
I've always thought it was understood that 10 over was kinda the reasonable limit.

That said, I tend to hate the way most other people drive.

Theres a difference between speeding like a normal person and speeding recklessly. If you don't know how to drive than don't speed. Easy squeezy.

I have no problem going 20 over if I have an open road. It's not me being impatient or reckless, I always drive at a comfortable speed. I never speed up or slow down very fast though, I gradually get up to speed.

Also going over 130 most cops won't chase after you. The ones that do though look like normal state troopers but have special cars that can top 200. (not talking about me, someone I know)

My experience with Philly and rush hour is more like 10-15 mph if you are lucky.

tbh, I don't know why I put "rush hour" in that post

It doesn't even make sense
