I have not gotten any tickets, so I missed the bullet many times.

I'm going to be a good driver from now on. Thankfully, what happened to this guy did not happen to me.

Let me school you in SoCal driving...

USUALLY it says 65...and you are going 5-7 mph.

SO...when the road is open, and it says 65...you are owed at least 85 to make up for the hours of going 5-7.

This is just how it is.

my limit is 10 miles over. i won't exceed that in most cases. i usually try not to go more than 7 or 8 miles over.

My daily driver is a truck with a full time 4wd and low gears..... I drive real slow....

Driving my car though, is a different story.... and I only get to drive it a few times a year, so it's not that bad..... I'm a safe driver...
Link Posted: 2/21/2006 9:58:12 PM EDT
I always set the cruise control right at the speed limit.
Link Posted: 2/21/2006 9:58:21 PM EDT
I used to tear ass around now half the time i find myself doing 5 under if I am not paying attetion guess im getting old
Link Posted: 2/21/2006 9:59:01 PM EDT
Usually about 9-10 miles over, when its an open road and the radar detector is not squawking, 20-30 over in the car, 70-80 over on the bike.

oh, those are fast...lol



i do about 5 mph over...

Link Posted: 2/21/2006 10:20:02 PM EDT
I generally do 5-7 over, Have been know to "wind it tight"
My license is my work, so I dont play to much, but everynow and again I get a fool in a Frontier wanting to play games, me and the big rig will hit 115 or so.
Most Nissans only go 89-92 'cept for the Zs.
Piss' em off when they cant out run a big truck ( well its really a Large Car )
Link Posted: 2/21/2006 10:23:08 PM EDT
I drive LEO speed.

In other words, I pay no attention whatsoever to the posted limit.
Link Posted: 2/21/2006 10:29:43 PM EDT
flow of traffic-probably within 5 mph of the speed limit on most roads.

Then I watch out for the people (idiots) who think they're in death race 2000. Zooming in and out of traffic to gain 5 seconds of time over 10 miles
Link Posted: 2/21/2006 10:31:33 PM EDT
on average +15

[Last Edit: 2/21/2006 10:41:02 PM EDT by OFFascist]
Usually 10 over in the city if traffic allows.

20 over on the highways.

In the unlikely event that I get a speeding ticket I just plead not guilty and request a trial by jury.

I hate how so many other cars now use "Z" in their name. The Z28 was one of the 1st if the 1st to use Z in it's name. It is the original "Z" car!

The 2002 Z28 Camaro(last year they were made) would top out out 167mph bone stock. I don't think any Nissan, Toyota, Mitubishi or even the mighty Ford Mustang(cept for the 03 Corba) would touch that......see your 350....z in my rear view mirror!

bullshit, the first Datsun/Nissan Z was the prototype in 1959
Link Posted: 2/21/2006 10:45:48 PM EDT
Normal driving 5-10 over, when it's a mostly open road, I've been know to do 20 over. Highways are different altogether, coming out of cali last summer, it was 25-30 over. Shhh dont tell CHP

Was it really? Dam I new the Nissan/Datson z was around for a long time but not that long. Thought it was 1970's. I stand corrected!

Still no comparison to the Chevy Z28. Totally differant class. The Z28 was a true monster.

Who cares? A ticket is only about $400 dollars.

I don't want to hijack the thread, but the Datsun/Nissan Z and the Z28 aren't even in the same class. The Z has always been a road car, not a muscle car. Their handling is classed up there with the porche and some other very manuverable cars of the day. The best handling years were the 240 series, 71' and 72'

I get crazy some days and run like a mad man doing 2-3mph OVER the posted speed limit!!! WOOOO You got to live on the edge every so often to feel alive.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 12:08:14 AM EDT
Off duty, I'll do 5 mph over the posted speed limit because Governor Lawton Chiles made it legal in Florida.

On duty, I'll go as fast as I have to responding to an emergency call.

Cruise control about 5mph over speed limit everywhere I go. I've had some crazy moments on my sportbike before, tho.. Kinda glad I don't have it anymore. Ok, maybe not....
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 4:51:25 AM EDT
slower than the speed limit most of the time.

AMEN!!!
If you're heading out to Riverside from the OC on the 91 your allowed to go 90 if your car can handle it.

14 over in my WRX. It's almost like 5 under in a normal car.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 5:10:00 AM EDT
I won't say how much over I travel. However since I work at night I usually stick close to the speed limit. I will say that the NY State Cops on 684 are driving extremely fast and the CT Staties on I84 go by me in the triple digits. This is at night no emergency lights the CT Statie was just going to meet his buddies for coffee at the same diner I go to before heading home after work.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 5:14:28 AM EDT
10-20 over on the highway

Usually do the speed limit or 5 over on all other roads
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 5:22:24 AM EDT
Depends on conditions. Wide open interstate, daytime. 15 over.

Around town I pretty much stick to 5 over on the interstates and main roads.


30 is about my minimum speed, if I try to drive slower I'll end back up at 30 unless I'm paying strict attention to my speedo.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 7:55:59 AM EDT
usually about 10 over....sometimes 15-20 on the highway, with good views of the berms.....(where the Staties like to park)
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 8:01:56 AM EDT
15-20 over the posted limit.

It drives me nuts when people insist on doing the speed limit.

It's also really fun to blow through school zones and watch people scatter
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 8:02:41 AM EDT
9 miles over. Always.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 8:03:35 AM EDT
I admit I drive too fast. I don't do 100 on the interstate or anything nuts like that. But about 75 or 80ish is ok for me.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 8:03:53 AM EDT
I've taken my intrepid on road trips before where I will try to stay around 100 the whole way, though on occasion I have had the governor shut me down at 115.

About 13 over, give or take.

Last few years never over 10.

Before I got my 1st ticket I would easly do 40+ on the highway. Nissan Sentras will easly do 100+ on the highway. Look back on it now, and go what a dumb ass I was.

80-90ish unless I see a cop
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 8:49:57 AM EDT
I used to be very impatient. A few tickets and a couple accidents when I was younger straightened me out.

The most I'll do nowadays on a regular basis (in a non-passing situation) is 10 over. If you go less than that you run the risk of getting rear ended on the highway I drive every day...
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 9:14:33 AM EDT
Depends a lot on the local law enforcement reputation.

Near Raleigh, North Carolina, everyone seemed to hit 55 and hit the cruise control. There was no 'fast lane'.

On the other hand, speed limits in the UK are more 'recommended guidelines', as long as you're not dangerous, and not doing stupid speeds (eg 3-digit mph) you'll be OK.

Here in California, I tend to go 10-15 over, working on the 'safe road' theory. I drive nice low, modern sports cars (Camaro, S-4), which means I can safely take roads a little faster than the average SUV/Pickup.

I still get overtaken though. My rule is 'Never be the fastest man on the road'. Second-fastest will do nicely.

5-10
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 9:21:38 AM EDT
7-8 in high speed or 4-5 in low seem to have been pretty safe
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 9:30:00 AM EDT
maybe he would have felt better in South Dakota that would have cost him $99.00 on the speed. but I supose they got to pay for that airplane some how.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 9:30:30 AM EDT
Usually 15 to 20 over. This morning I was going between 95 and 110 in a 65 most the way to work...was late and have a new boss who watches time.
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 9:37:55 AM EDT
I drive one of two ways:

1. Watching speed and relaxing in the car - 6 over or less as conditions allow. Cops in San Antonio will look at you only if you're doing 9 or more over.

2. Watching for cops and being an alert driver - 10-15 over. But mostly I just drive the road. This on deserted country roads.

Remember, the limit is the same for blind granny's driving a boat in icy weather as it is for Dale Jarret driving attentively in a high performance car. The problem for Dale is that it's designed to safeguard against the old ladies.

+1
usually that means about 5-10 over
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 9:46:08 AM EDT
Usually no more than 12 over unless I am in a pack on the Highway. I am in a older PU which draws little attention and have a radar detector. I have gotten tickets before but it has been about 4 years since the last one.
