What's the speed limit in your area?

it's 55 m.p.h. in Florida in most of I-95 and other major highways, which is very slow ...

I'm a bit of a speed demon so whatever I can do without getting caught

The funny thing is that I've only gotten one ticket in my life and it was for going 23 in a 20... I went ot trafic school which was a joke to get it off my record

Before or after the cops hit their quota?

65 on the interstates outside major cities - but how fast you can go before they pull you over varies.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

And if conservatives come to power, will be 80mph *votes conservative*

70mph was introduced when cars had crap safety. Going 70 back in the 60's (or was it 70's) would be as dangerous as like 100mph or more in modern cars

You can go 10% over the speed limit before getting fined, so you have to be going 34 m.p.h before you get fined
