How fast do you drive on the highway?
Traffic engineers use a method called the 85th percentile to determine speed limits. Sometimes the speed limits are set by the 85th and more often than not, they are posted lower.

How fast do you drive?

Tough generalization. There are times when I feel comfortable at 80, and other times when 50 is too much, and I can't wait to get off and take the local roads. Mostly it's a function of who's on the road with me, how much they are liquored up, or how pissed off they are at the outcome of a sporting event.

65MPh max. The last time my LGT went over that was when my dad drove it after I bought her. He got it up 125mPH on the North Dallas TollWay. I baby my LGT so I tend to drive like a grandma. 40MPH is the limit on the road I take to work

So if the posted limit is 150 would you do 160? LOL:lol:

These are good results. Keep em coming!

This poll should have only two options:

1. At a safe (to myself and others) and reasonable speed, taking into primary consideration the other motorists (in both amount and action,) and into secondary consideration the posted limit.

2. Like a jerkoff.

I usually drive as fast as I think I can get away with. And that depends on which state i'm in. In Colorado it's usually 10 to 15 over, back home (Cali) I drive with the flow of traffic in the fast line (80 to 90 on the highway). Simply love California driving.

I should have said- consistently 10mph over the posted limit, not to exceed 85mph.
