I have noticed that my speed varies to the music I am listening to at the time. In the city I drive within five over. Country/ highway depends on the music.

Thumbs up

I usually stick to around 5mph over the speed limit unless I need to overtake and to do so safely must get stuck into the go pedal. I guess it's all about where I am, who's around and the time I'm driving. I'm no saint but I won't put anyone including my passengers at risk. Any hooning I do is by myself in no mans land, think Mad Max and you're getting the picture. I'd be lying if I said I drove within the laws, I wouldn't be driving what I do if I did hahaha, but, there is a time and place to use said power...........nothing like a good skid.

I'm in the 5mph over club myself. Unless I'm in the city, then it's strictly the limit (I've contributed more than my fair share of funds to the local law enforcement retirement plan!)

i've heard that radar guns have a margin of error of about +/- 10mph, cops dont usually mess with you on the highway if your within 10. that being said... im about 9 over

In Truck:
I usually just judge w/ how traffic is moving,, try to stay in top 1/3rd of traffic,,, for every 2-3 cars i pass i want 1 car to pass me.
If by self usually 5 in city and 5-20 on highway depending upon how well i know road and how far can see.
Only had 2 speeding tickets in 16 years driving,, one each in past 2 Octobers. One I honestly thought speed limit was higher, other dude just had it out for me.
Now on motorcyle it's a whole different ball game. haha.

I usually do 5 over, unless the limit is 75, in which case I feel that is fast enough.

What good is having a Hemi if you don't use it? I don't drive crazy but I do drive fast.
