It depends on where you live I guess. Maybe they pay more attention to that kind of thing there. Here in California if you’re not going 80 people are flying by you. I don’t like it but with the car I drive I’ll take it.I do not speed. I’m basically a robot. I see a number and that’s how fast I go. But I’ve never had a ticket or anything lol
People blow past me + 40mph all day. I see people in rear view mirror panicking shouting raising hands and fist etc when behind me
like no impulse control and they like try to hit anyone they can to get around me. Hardcore road ragers
its 65/70 for my highways, i75/70 and people are averaging 85-90+ not even and in the 55mph over dayton area, people go 70-90 as routine traffic. joking. people used to be fear speeding, ohio state troopers was every mile slapping them down. now, you see one a week. just sitting there, as traffic blares past. im actually disappointed that they aren't cracking down on the enforcement of traffic laws anymore. truly disappointed. I personally hold my speed, and just let them rip on by, but ive had people, flash at me, honk at me, they fly around me and try and brake check me.The other half of that is if avg traffic is going that much faster than the posted limit, the limit is set to low.
Staying with the flow of traffic is the safest way to drive. You can be as smug as you want. Any State trooper or driving school instructor will agree.Rationalize all you want; you're still wrong. Driving at the limit and keeping right makes him safer.
see, where you went, I wouldn't go a hair over 70mph. I max go 4mph, and hit cruise. but the faster you go, the less mpg you get due to drag, (atleast for my cars that ive owned gear to speed ratios) anything over 65-70mph, the mpg just drops off heavily. I dont care about saving minutes to sacrifice dollars in gas.Speed limits are set to low. I just got back from Fl. I set my cruise at 84 and was constantly being passed.
The 70 Mph speed limit was set in the 1950's. The freeways were deemed to be safe at 70 for the avg driver with 1940's automobiles. Today that number is more like 90 for cars built in the 2000's.
