In and around the town I am at or below the speed limit. I know over the years my reaction time has lessened and the old eyes ain't what they used to be. On the open highway where I can sort of see for long distances I may go above the limit on occasion but I try not to. After a few speeding tickets it begins to get very expensive. With the older cars you could feel and hear the highway and your tires so you almost knew how fast you were going. The newer cars are such quiet things I could be tooling along and think I am doing 55 then I look and the needle is up to 70. Oh me oh my. (LOL)
Let's just say . . I admire the suggestion.
I find myself at least 5 mph over on most occasions.
Yes because the UK has many speed cameras and average speed cameras which stops you from speeding between cameras.
I do now (after I got a ticket). Lesson learned!
Within reason. :)
Any posted limit 55 and under---yes.
Freeways around here are 60 to 70. Depending on the other traffic, I may drive up to 70 in the 60 zone.
Years ago (before the "energy crisis") I was driving in a state with a prima facie sped limit ( which at the time meant "as fast as you want"). I drove 80 for a brief period of time, but wasn't comfortable at that speed.
(80 is a football field in 2.5 seconds)
70 is the max speed i am comfortable with---and only on a road designed with that speed in mind.
Most of the time, yes.
Almost all the time. Once in a while I'll catch myself going over but not by more than 10.
In my younger years, hell no. Now that I'm ancient, I usually go the speed limit.
Unless my lights and siren are activated.
I rarely drive, as I have commoners for that. The drivers go a little over, as does almost everybody. I think they're too scared of me, to floor it.
