>>10856395 Oh I just remembered a story that might interest you guys. A few months ago I was late for work and driving about 90 mph on I-81 when suddenly I saw a cop in a Charger behind some trees in the median. I was able to slow down slightly before passing him, but I was still going too fast. Queue his lights and him inching toward the road to come after me. I start to merge to the edge of the road to pull over when I realize that there is now a large group of cars preventing the cop from getting on the road.
I floor it. I don't know why thinking back. I could have afforded the ticket. Maybe because I had been lazy and hadn't renewed my inspection sticker. Maybe I just wanted to say fuck the police. But I ran like hell.
I'm over half a mile away before he's able to start coming after me, but by this time I'm doing over 120 mph, and it's too late to stop now. Luckily there wasn't much traffic on the road to slow me down, so I managed to make it all the way to work without getting caught. Felt fucking good, man.
>Yes, i speed. >Wherever i feel safe speeding, whenever. >for pleasure. >Yes i have been caught.
I usually speed, not to be a cunt or to be cool. But because I feel that a lot of speed limits are arbitrary and most traffic is speeding as well. Here everyone speeds on the highway, so i usually go fast enough to keep with traffic or a little faster nothing insane though. I use to drive like a cunt and dodge traffic just to go fast. Now i drive a bigger vehicle and it doesn't feel safe weaving through traffic. I have been caught twice, once 91 in a 60mpg limit. Another time 30 in a 20 mph school zone. The 90 i was just being stupid, but not reckless. The school zone was bullshit because it was 6:30 am and elementary school doesn't start till 8, teachers weren't even arriving yet.
They don't. Usually its the person farthest back that they can catch. Thats why if your going to speed because traffic is going that fast, you do it in the middle of the pack and out of the right lane.
They need to allow the carpool speed limit to be 10 over what ever it usually is. Here in WA it's 60 around the sound, which would make people carpool not only for the lane but for the legality speed, save gas pooling go faster legally. Make the fine higher so people don't abuse it more. Win win.
>Do you speed? Yes, but not like an idiot. Only ~5-15 MPH above >When When it's prudent to do so (not a lot of cars around) >Fun or save time? Not really either, the sheer breathtaking 160 horsepower my honda produces tends to make me not notice speeding much unless i am going retard fast
>>10858660 Chargers come stock with quiet exhaust. My friends pathfinder was louder. I got an slp loudmouth which sounds sexy as fuck but it's too loud when you don't want it to be so I put varex mufflers on it. And chargers are excellent cars for speeding. People assume you're a cop as long as you get a black/silver/white one.
I drive a WRB WRX. I wish I could speed but my car is too obvious so I don't unless I am on a back road. Sometimes I wish I had a more discreet car but then I see it in a parking lot and think "nahhhhhh"
>Do you speed? Yes >When and where? Often on familiar roads. >For fun, or to save time? Because I can't be arsed driving with my needle glued to whatever stupid speed limit is posted at the time, especially arrow straight two lanes limited to 100kmh/60mph or the general 50kmh/30mph limit in cities. >Ever been caught? I've gotten tickets before, but I try to dodge cameras (permanent camera maps, radio announcements of temporary cameras) and I always stay within 20kmh/12mph of the limit so they remain affordable and don't add any points to my license if I do get flashed. Dog bless Germany, the country where people see it as their natural right to drive fast.
I'll try and stick to 30 limits, but if the conditions and traffic allow I'll do 40. There are some ridiculous 40 limits that are safe to do 60 in too. Then again, I often drive under the limit because I'm tired or the conditions are poor. I never really speed with the conscious intention to break the law or get an adrenalin fix; I just drive according to my judgement of the road, the conditions, the traffic and my ability.
Also, yes, I've been caught doing 50 in a 40, fucked me right off, but made me more cautious about speeding on high-traffic arterial routes.
>>10856374 >Do you speed? Is 5-10 over limit speeding? Mostly not even that much, too low on cash, too bad mpgs in my shitbox. >When and where? Roads I know where cops use to sit and wait. Villages, ways by the forests. No motorways anywhere near here. >For fun, or to save time? Because 3rd and 4th gears rpms. No fun in going 60 on 50 kmph village. >Ever been caught? Nope, no cash to pay tickets.
>When and where? Motorways, wide country roads, generally when there's no other cars about. I don't dangerously overtake on country roads and shit though. But when it's open in front of me I put my foot down.
>For fun, or to save time? For fun, I enjoy driving at a speed I'm comfortable at, driving's boring when you're going the speed limit.
>Ever been caught? Nope. Police cars going the other way can't properly gauge your speed, and if there's not a sign telling you there's a speed camera they can't sit by the side of the road waiting for you to go past. I have only been driving for 5 years though so I probably will eventually
>>10856526 >>10856715 I was pulled twice in a row over two days in the same spot. Once I was doing 79 in a 40, and got a ticket for doing 39+, but was let off without reckless driving/endangerment, or whatever because the road was empty and it was 3AM.
The 2nd time, in the same spot, I was heading the opposite direction. To this day, I still don't believe I was speeding. I saw two under cover cars pulling out of a neighborhood, and I was heading at a constant 46MPH in a 40MPH with a car passing me in the right lane doing about 52+.
Anyways, I didn't bother slowing down, and the cop pulled out. I didn't think he'd pull me because I wasn't speeding. Apparently I was doing 12MPH over, though. I got the vibe he clocked the other guy and mistook him for me. Complete bullshit.
Had to take two classes to get points off my record. Other than that, they were just tickets, partially because the cops felt bad since I was already charged with a felony and soon to be convicted of both a felony and misdemeanor for bogus communistwealth reasons.
Virginia is literally the shittiest state. We have some of the most strict laws over stupid rhetorical bullshit, meanwhile we also get pretty lenient laws over a few things (Particularly gun rights). I kind of compare our political party to a country club of gun wielding rich republicans who judge you if you steal a pack of gum.
and fuck that bullshit about radar detectors. It is completely out the ass that they can confiscate a device you have even if you are from out of state.
Generally in traffic i'll keep to the speed of people around me. If it's late at night and the road is empty i'll sometimes go for a flat out hoon.
I'm an idiot for road rage though. Some prick in a 118i used a slip road to undercut me the other day and then started hurling abuse at me when i flashed my high beams, so i cut him up in revenge. Apparently BMW 118s are pretty slow to 120mph.
>>10859989 What country is it, anon? I'm >>10859937 from Poland and cops hide everywhere here waiting for incoming cash. I'm not the guy yelling 'fuck cops', I don't mind them - but it's irritating if a cop runs in front of your car, almost on the middle of the road out of a dense forest just to tell you that your fire extinguisher's inspection time has expired and fine you.
They just bumped a bunch f highway speed limits here from 100 to 110. Before, I'd cruise at 110-115 in the slow lane with most traffic doing 120. Now, it seems like I have to cruise at 120-130 in the slow lane with most traffic doing 120-140. Haven't noticed any change except people keep right, more often now. It's kinda sweet actually.
>>10856374 >Do you speed? A lot, but not by a lot (1-5 over 90% the time) Two speeding tickets is all it takes for me to lose my license as a newly qualified driver in the UK. Then it becomes 4 after 2 years. >When and where? Could be anytime, anywhere: pay more attention to what's going on around me than my speed. >For fun, or to save time? I normally don't notice I am speeding till I actually am. Need more experience behind the wheel to become a better driver.
I always speed at least a little. 10 over is normal. I used to do backroad speed runs all the time when I had a little shitbox and got up to like 120 most of the time. Now I drive a big bullshit SUV tank machine and it's not fun anymore.
>>10859195 Outside of cities in Germany: 8-10 km/h 10,- EUR 11-15 km/h 20,- EUR 16-20 km/h 30,- EUR 21-25 km/h 70,- EUR, 1 Point 26-30 km/h 80,- EUR, 1 Punkt 31-40 km/h 120,- EUR, 1 Punkt
I couldnt care less about radars. When I'm going on a roadtrip, i use my gps radar warner, in and around my hometown i know where the police stands, so i gun it. Haven't seen a mobile radar in a year of driving.
>>10856374 >Do you speed? I never don't speed during summer. I'm usually a bit over or at the limit during winter > When and where? Highway. Only 2 spots I keep under because I know cops hang around. >For fun, or to save time? Both
>Ever been caught? Only once. 81 in a 65. (Live in Quebec. As long as you're under 75, cops don't bother you) Wasn't my fault though. I had just installed new rims + tires that day and it wasn't quite the right size to keep the same speed
>>10856374 >55 in 70mph speed limited highways cause muh fuel economy >55 in 45mph limits in the city cause muh fuel economy >55 in 60mph roads, fuel economy >otherwise 5 over or so in residentials unless the school limits are active
Traffic is almost always going faster or considerably faster than me, even when I'm going 10 over in the city.
got caught doing 160 on my bike. Thought about trying to get away but I didn't know the area and would have likely have gotten caught. Got charged with reckless driving. Served a few days in jail, got my bike impounded, shitload of fines and lost my license for 6 months.
I'm in California, should I try contesting it, just in case the fucker doesn't show up? I hear your case gets dismissed if the cop doesn't show up to court. If he does, well, I'll probably just plead guilty.

>>10863488 What kind of road is out there. The enumclaw/green water logging roads in king have some straits but the roads are so shit I would feel to sketched to go more than 130 on them, fucking dips everywhere. I ended up not seeing one and glazed the bottom off of a mustang subframe doing around that speed. lucky me skid protection. Head south on 5 till you pass the capital and hit up the tenino tumwater area. Fucking boss ass roads.
>For fun, or to save time? Fun, but with speeding for fun it gets me there quicker.
>Ever been caught? I've been stopped multiple times, only get warnings somehow though. I was stopped at 4am this morning by a state trooper. He gave me a warning and I went home, since I was only ~3 miles away from my house.
Yes go on the website near the due date and get an extension. The website depends on your county look it up. For LA its lasuperiorcourt dot org. When the extension comes up, set a date for arraignment (usually already 6 months at least after the ticket). Go to the arraignment and tell the judge not guilty with your big brass balls, even if you are a guilty as a nigger caught with his dick in a white woman by force while holding a stolen t.v.
When the trial date comes if the cop is there say you would like to change your plea and request traffic school. If not, congrats you just weaseled out of a ticket you guilty nigger, go get some kfc to celebrate.
As a note some counties are so backlogged it takes almost to over a year to see you depending on the courthouse.
I live in Chicago and I absolutely always speed. Highways here are 55, no one ever goes that slow, most traffic goes around 65-75. I usually do 80 on familiar stretches. Sheriffs are rare on the interstate, and most CPD do not have radar equipment. On other streets I constantly go 10 over the speed limit. Thats a safe bet. I rarely do 15 over on city streets, only to really pass someone. Ive been pulled over for doing 15 over a few times, never given a ticket. I received two speeding tickets in my life, 25 over each, both on highways as a speed trap I didn't see.
Not really When I do it's for short stretches of interstate or on back roads For fun but I always drove 9mph over which I don't consider speeding
First day got license reinstated caught doing 130mph in a 70 just racing some random guy that was going fast. Cop seen me pass him so he pulled me over. Wrote me an 85 in 70 ticket, good thing cause that would've violated probation and I didn't think about it. Also got clocked 95 in a 65, cop wrote me a 80 in a 65 ticket cause I was nice. Was through the gorge, well worth it
>>10856374 >Do you speed? Sometimes. >When and where? Usually only on backroads with no cops, but sometimes when someone else in a fast looking car rides my ass and then proceeds to try and blow past me, I have this bad habit of feeling obligated to race them. >For fun, or to save time? Only for fun. >Ever been caught? Yes, luckily only for little things like 10 over. I've been up to 145 in a 70 racing another trans am on the interstate. Unfortunately i've been over 100mph way too many times. It's very easy with this car, and I don't like to consider what mightve happened if I got pulled going that fast.
Talk me out of my racing habit /o/ Losing my license means losing my career..
America needs to decriminalize speeding. If Colorado can legalize marijuana, what's stopping Americans from making speeding so insignificant where the police lose any of their power for issuing fines for it?
Driving through Oregon, girlfriend says, "ever gone 100?" I tell her not in this car...yet >closing in on California border, probably 10 miles away >no one around for at least a mile in either direction >totally flat, dry, good road >fuck it, let's do it >rolling along at 110mph >see car in far distance, being to slow accordingly >its a fucking cop >pull over and accept fate >briefly consider running for the border, remember that that doesn't work anymore
91 in a 55, $460 ticket. I was going about 101 when I saw him. Had he clocked me over 100, I would have gone straight to jail.
I got the ticket reduced to $150 by writing a letter to the judge. My driving record was unaffected, as was my insurance. This was about 4 years ago.
Got caught only once, while driving to work and still being a bit groggy (military, inside casern only 30 kph allowed), MPs stopped me, of course. "Hurr we jus' got you with 35kph. You DO know it's an order to drive 30, don't you?". God I hate those people.
>>when and where highways, interstates, always during the day, never at night (got pulled over at night one time and learned that fucking lesson).
>>for fun or to save time? with neither in mind really. If I can comfortably drive at 60 and for some reason the speed limit is set low at 45 (ie to earn revenue via tickets)...Imma drive 60mph unless I suspect cops.
ever been caught? yes twice >>first time smoking weed (was in high school) >>left my girlfriends house late at night >>speed limits go from 55 to 45 to 55. >>didn't notice, didn't care >>car tails me, riding my ass, way too fucking close >>speed up to give us some distance (60ish mph) >>disco lights >>reduced to 55 in a 45, $140 total for ticket and court costs

>>10869868 American laws are really pessimistic. On the Autobahn, it all about actually preventing accidents from occurring in the first place, hence the strict observance of "drive on the right, pass on the left". In America, it's all about surviving accidents once they happen, hence the hilariously low blanket speed limits on all roads no matter what.
>>10870920 Yeah, and also that. Still though, speed is a very touchy and nearly taboo subject around many people in America. Many people get very offended by fast cars and think governors are a good idea. Tell anyone that you've achieved triple digit speeds, and they'll think you're a brainless, reckless fool even if it took place on an empty expressway at 3:30 am. All speed is deadly all of the time according to most Americans.
>>10870955 I talk about what I do in my car and my friends all think I am retarded and "going to kill myself". That may be so, but I firmly believe that if you die doing something you enjoy then it was worth it. Not everyone wants to sit around in fear that what they are doing may injure or kill them. We're all going to die eventually, might as well enjoy life while you're still capable.

It's what everyone does here. >Ever been caught? Oddly never been caught speeding but have gotten speeding tickets when I know that I hadn't even gotten up to speed yet.
ITT people seem to forget that slowing down 1/4th of your speed halves your distance travelled while braking. Another example on slippery surfaces, there's a huge difference between going 40km/h and 45km/h on said surface. A difference between having some traction and not having any traction at all. Not to forget other enviromental hazards, even if you don't see any other car.
>>10856374 I always speed, in villages I do 10kph over the speed limit which is exactly the point where the police doesn't give you a ticket yet, outside villages I do about 15-20kph over for which I might get a ticket but wouldn't run me much, on highways 15kph over. About a third of all drivers does roughly the same thing and over half speeds but to a lesser extent, it's very common here. I do it to save time and money, my car is more efficient at higher speeds with the exception of the highway.
I've been caught speeding several times but never got a ticket, I was presumably near or within tolerance.
>Do you speed? In the car - not really. 5-10 over. 5 over in town, 10 over on the highway
On the bike - yes.
When and where?
In the car - whenever traffic is doing it. I just go with the flow. I don't follow the fast lane going 80 but I'll do whatever the middle lane is doing
On the bike - Back roads where I know cops don't care and usually with a group. a few up front have a bluetooth thing in their helmet, I ride behind someone with one so I know when to slow it down for hazards and cops. On the freeway and in town I do the same as the car - 5-10 over to keep up with traffic.
For fun or to save time?
In the car - save time, not be in the way On the bike - fun
Ever been caught?
Car - once. I was going 90 in a 65 at midnight on a Thrusday night. 3 lane highway, no other cars, just wasn't really paying attention. I got pulled over and the cop was decent. I gave him my info and he came back with a ticket for 10 over. I didn't have to beg or plea. One time I was late so I was going 90 in rush hour. I saw a cop with his gun on me I ended up passing a semi so he couldn't get a read on me. I don't know if that counts? And I was pulled over for hooning around once. Cop didn't have me on radar, just told me to cool it down. He was super cool about it.
On the bike? - nope. We've passed cops going the other way doing 90+ in a 35-45 and they don't care
