    You mean driving? Always at least 10-15 mph over the speed limit (in Canada it is in kms./hr.). Occasionally I forget myself and get up to 25-30 mph over, then I remember the hefty fines and slow down.icon_biggrin.gif

    I do not understand the Canadian speed regulations. From Detroit to Toronto, the road signs say anything above 65 will grant you big fines or a car seizure when that road could EASILY be going at 75-80... and it is only one big long road. There's only so much field I want to look at before I am tempted to speed 20mph more. lmao.

    I agree, but in the nanny state known as Ontario (where they outlawed pit bull terriers) they cracked down on "racing" behaviour due to some assholes who were going crazy (like 180+ in a 100 km. zone). I personally find really slow tentative drivers (who don't check their blind spotslicon_smile.gif more dangerous then speeders.

    Rarely. Unless one is traveling a distance of a hundred miles or so, it doesn't make a significant difference in the time of the trip. And most bad drivers waste the few seconds that they "gain" from speeding by inefficient stopping and starting.

    Most people do not realize that 5ks over the posted speed limit has the same risk factor as 0.5 blood alcohol - it is all a matter of physics my dear Watson - the mass of a car and the speed it is travelling at is directly related to risk

    And oh - for those who say speed doesn't kill - you are right - it's just that you stop suddenly! - and the brain keeps moving forward inside your dopey head

    And sometimes Nanny is more interested on protecting innocent passersby than total fuckwits who deserve to snuff themselves

    Quoted for physics truth.

    Usually +5, morning office hours +10 to +15 depending on how fast traffic in general is moving.

    If you said "never" and are usually driving in the left hand lane with a huge pile of cars behind you, and are living in Toronto Canada or any city in the USA, then at least one of the people following you has a gun and would love to use it on you. Keep right unless you are passing someone, way right, way over there with the trucks. Thanks.

    I admit every time I get into the car I go at least 20 mph over the speed limit. Especially when my favorite music is on. I just wanna roll the window down and hit the gas as much as it'll go.

    Fastest I'll go is 75mph, which is sort of the average speed on the freeways here in So.Cal.

    Cops hate me though so I tend to drive a lot slower/safer now, I've gotten a ticket for doing a mile over speed limit icon_mad.gif

    The DPS cops here pretty much leave you alone unless youre being a complete and utter asshole. Im glad they took the mobile speed vans off the interstates. Nothing worse than people slamming on their brakes because of those things. They stomp on their brakes whether they were speeding or not. Absolutely dangerous.

    Exception to the rule. Do it often enough, the ticket will be inevitable. It's when the police go out on stealth speed traps just for speeders that people get landed with a ticket. Our state is ticket happy since it makes them money.

    always 5-14 over (15 is the next up on tha ticket list) and the speed limits in most of the places around here are retarded slow, especially on a dead empty 4 lanes at 3am. the only reason they keep these limits so low is so they can increase revenue for the city. I wouldnt speed if the limits were more reasonable, but in a few places round here going the speed limit WILL get you killed. getting a ticket is all part of the cost of driving, just like having to get a tune up or oil changes. I've had so many tickets i cant even count, yet i've never caused a wreck. slow ppl in tha fast lane should be the ones their lookin for, an what bout when i am obeyin tha law, how bout you pull me over and give me $150 back!
