I'm 15 1/2, and I usually go like, 75-80 on the interstate (keeping up with the flow of traffic) and thats in the SLOW lane! lol its awesome! but the cops don't usually pull people over if they are going the same speed as the cars around them. Now if you dont' want to be caught speeding, keep a car infront of you (don't be the first car in a group) since their radar detecters will only hit the first car inline (but if you are on the interstate, then there will be 2 lanes, so the first cars in each lane will be able to be "hit" with the radar gun) so travel in a pack if you want to speed...

Good Luck!

PS, its not even legal to go 1 over....

Well, what do you think? Of course it is not legal to do 75 in a 65; you're asking for a speeding ticket. In some places, you MAY get away with 10% over, but even that is depending upon the discretion of the police officer. I wouldn't count on the leeway to travel at 71 and a half and NEVER, ever go ten mph over the limit!!

the rule of thumb is that they won't book you (if you're not driving dangerously) if you arn't going 10% above the limit. eg 6.5mph over a 65 mph limit = 71.5mph

But if you sideswipe them then its all over, and you'll get a speeding ticket for sure!

No, what part of speed LIMIT don't you understand? The speed limit is the maximum legal speed, not a speed suggestion.

I know that people do that all the time...but you can be cited for going over the speed limit. But sometimes it is safer to keep up with the flow of traffic even if that means going over the limit a little bit.

The posted speed limit signs usually say "maximum" at the top (at least they do here), and that's in optimum driving conditions.........and that's the legal speed limit.
Here the police USUALLY set their speed traps at about 10 over the limit, but some do set them lower.
I think that if you have to pass a vehicle, or get out of a dangerous situation by speeding up, it would be overlooked, but any speeding can get you pulled over by the police. You may get a warning letter, which goes on your file, or you may get a verbal warning, or you could get a fine. It's the police's call.

No, that is why it is called the speed limit. most cops don't care about 5mph over but a lot will pull you over at 10mph or more over. in my city St. Louis the fines go. from 1-5mph over its $73, from 6-10 over its $83, from 11-15 over its $108, from 16-19 over its $133, from 20-25 over its $208 and over that you have to appear in court.

I believe it "IS" actually a speed limit and not just a suggestion. The thing when your on the highway is to NOT be the fastest car in the general vicinity. If you got a ticket for 10 over,you really have no defence. GOOD LUCK.

NO - a spped limit sign is a regulatory sign, and therefore is the law. It is never legal for you to exceed that - that is the speed limit under ideal driving conditions.

However, many states give their police officers some flexibility in deciding what they ticket, so you may not get a ticket, but it is still not legal.
