I speed everywhere. In a 50km/h i'll do 65-70, on the highway 110 km/h speed limit i'll go 120-30. The speed limit is so boring. I haven't gotten pulled over yet for speeding, other things yes.....

I sped more in my Impala than I do in the Ranger, especially in town. This is more than likely just a perception issue from the change in ride height. I've looked down to see that I was at or even below the limit in town.

On the freeway, I'll do 4–7 over in the Ranger…the Impala was almost always 9 over except in areas where I know WSP likes to set up.

I try to follow the posted speed, however, I give myself 5-6 mph over on the highway. I consider this minor because it is almost impossible to go exactly the speed limit (due to speedo error, road being uneven, etc). What gets me is when I'm traveling 65 in a 60, and someone whizzes past me. Luckily, I've never really had an issue about getting pulled over for speeding -- esp. on the highway.

I always go 10 Kmh over the limit if I can. If the conditions dont allow me then I find the quickest way to get there safely (that includes passing)

I used to speed a lot when I was younger, now I never go more than 5mph over the limit. Got an evading the police charge at 17 cause I was doing 100+, got clocked, got scared when I saw cherries two miles back, and booked it.

HA! we (stacey and I) both drive around 60-65 to save on fuel. The most amount of driving on a daily bases is an 8 mile jont to her work. The extra minute or two does not offset the cost of the fuel being used at a faster speed. (ranger at 70-75 = 15/16 mpg) She was pulling around 16 with the expediton and with the ranger around 19-20

Default Re: are you an habitual speeder?

I do about 5 over but sometimes around 10 over on the highway.
It seems that the cops around here don't bother with someone doing 5 over.

And before yall go on your rants about the cops, no, I wouldn't get pissed if I got pulled over because I know that I am breaking the speed limit. Only reason I would get mad is if the cop is being an arsehole...
