Default Why Do You Speed?

Yeah, serious question. Why do you speed?
Back when I was stationed at Ft. Hood, I remember reading an article in the post newspaper that talked about speeding. So many soldiers were having wrecks due to being late for formation that the army did a study to show how speeding really saved no time or very little time as to make it not worth it.
Iíve always remembered that.

A couple of years later, after I got out of the army, I got a ticket and not paying the fine (I tried but thatís a whole different story)a warrant was issued against me. Afraid of getting arrested, I tried to not bring attention to myself by getting pulled over so I started driving the speed limit. That was over 40 years ago. It became such a habit that Iím very comfortable driving the limit. Iím now a cruise control junkie.
The peace of mind is wonderfully relaxing. No more panic braking. No constantly looking for da man. When I do see a cop I donít even look at my speedometer cuz I know Iím good. These days it seems as though Iím the slowest driver around. I rarely pass anyone. Of course I swear that if I was doing 100 mph, someone would pass me up. Lol!
Iíve also discovered, since becoming a GOF, that setting my cruise at the speed limit really pizzes people off. Gotta admit, Iím kinda getting a kick out of that. Itís a GOFís prerogative.
Now I will confess that my Harley has a mind of its own and really likes to cruise around 80. I try to hold her back but itís hard.

So, long story long, why do you speed? Is it because youíre always late, impatient, love going fast, feel like youíre getting away with something?
Whatís you excuse.
Just curious.

For the LEOís, is it really breaking the law to speed or is it considered something else.
Most people are pretty much law abiding citizens in most things except when it comes to the speed limit. Why is that?

My excuse used to be impatience and wanting to get where I was going...especially to work or on long trips. Now as I've gotten older, I take my 5 extra (or less) and set the cruise. Plus driving my 01 F350 older vehicle for almost 20 years, I just developed a habit of not overworking the motor and all the parts. I carried that over to my new truck and don't speed heavily. I guess I'm in the beginning stages of GOF-dom..

Because I have places to be. I would rather spend time at the destination then in the car on the way.

Those studies, take some time and read them again. They often don't consider traffic. Prime example, assuming the speed limit is 55, if I go 5 mph faster than the guy next to me, 30 miles down the road I am just 2.5 miles ahead of him. Let's say at 30 miles down the road, there is a bottleneck. I am able to get to the bottleneck in traffic quicker. Along with a lot of people who also go ahead of speed limit guy. Now there are a lot more cars stacked up between us, and it takes him even longer than it took me to get through the bottleneck.

There is a massive savings in time by speeding once traffic is considered. There is a really good book on this called "Traffic: What is says about us" or something like that.

Speed limits are dumb for the most part...driving dangerously depending on your surroundings is the problem.

There was a dps in the slow lane going 70 a while back & several in the fast lane were scared to pass him & slowed to equal his speed even though the limit was 75...created a HUGE accordion bumper to bumper effect. Lotsa folks turn into idiots when they get behind the wheel.

I don’t speed. I follow the speed limit and use cruise control. I get passed all the time on the way to work, then once we get into town I’m right behind the guy that was driving like an idiot. You don’t save much time if any.

Most my speeding comes on the hwy with light traffic. If traffic is light it's easy to run 80-90mph and not even notice how fast your going.

I have never been a speeder in heavy traffic, weaving in and out of traffic, or speed on residential streets.

I agree with Smart here. I used to....just because and on occassion because I was late. Now, I just set the cruise at 5-7 over and left people fly past me on the highway. I do hate the two semi's riding right next to each other for miles on end while cars stack up behind them. Also the person who does not know how to use their cruise control and passes me and gets in front of me and slows down and then I pass them, all the while never taking mine off cruise control. If that happens more than once or twice, I will hammer down and get far past them.

I don’t speed, because when I was a young man, I got 6 speeding tickets in 5 weeks. The JP decided he was going to get my attention and put me on 12 months probation. During that time if I got another ticket I would lose my license for 12 months. Working in the oilfield, I had to have a drivers license. That year of probation taught me to leave in plenty of time to get where I was going without speeding and to use my cruise.

I like to get where I'm going, so usually I find myself going a little bit over the limit on an open highway. I've lived in the city full of bad drivers called Houston ever since I got my license. You learn pretty quick to speed or get run over. Gotta love going 80 in a 65 and some jack wagon just HAS to ride your bumper...Speed all you want, go the speed limit, who cares, just don't drive like an azz.

I’m never late…..unless my wife and kids are traveling with me. With speed limits at 70-80 I don’t speed any more.
They even did a study of the fire service and pretty much decided that we save no real time by using lights and sirens. At the moment we still do but they said at some point we won’t.

Iíve been curious about this as well. Me personally I donít speed, typically drive around 70, even if 75 is speed limit due to better fuel mileage. On a 100mile trip the difference between averaging 70mph vs 80mph is only 10min. Just my POV.

A vehicle is nothing more than a means to get from point A to point B as fast as possible. Speed limits are only to collect revenue. I too was stationed at Ft. Hood, but before Ft. Hood I was stationed in Germany. And the Germans have the autobahn with NO SPEED LIMITS. They manage it very well. It can be done.

You would think in the Land of the free we would have had Autobahn's before a dictator/socialist country would.......

Many years ago, when my daughter was a teenager we were driving down the road. My daughter looked up at me and said, doesn't that sign say the speed limit is 55? I told her yes, and she then asked me, why are you driving 65? I had no answer!

Speaking of....when I learned to drive and sped the most was when long drives were 55 mph (waaaay to slow) and maybe 65 as I got into college. I remember thinking 70-75 was fast enough. Now that most highway speeds are 70-75, I'm right where I was comfortable anyway. That probably has a lot to do with what I consider speeding or at my max.

The Austin tollway is at least 80 and when I'm down that way, I find myself in the 75-80 range max even though I could be rolling 84-85 or so without fear of a ticket. I get passed all the time like I'm standing still doing 75 on I-20

Itís funny you mention that. Had a DPS officer tell once, ď You ever top a hill and see that cop sitting on the side of the road and you slam on your brakes? You think you got away with it? Nope, I got ya but when I see the sparks coming off your front bumper I know youíre paying attention. Iím not worried about you. Now that SOB that flys past me and doesnít even see me, thatís the guy I want because heís dangerous.Ē

I'm usually a 5 MPH over guy, on the highway, just never in that big of a hurry. I get a kick out of the folks, who weave thru traffic , every morning, trying to go 80 and pass everyone. I always think to myself , why don't they just leave 5-10 minutes earlier everyday, instead of driving like a jack wagon every morning.

I don't speed ALL OF THE TIME. On open roads, I'll do 5 over without my conscience bothering me. Even on some city streets I'll go 5 over if the conditions allow it(light or no traffic, good weather). But one thing I HATE is being bunched up with a bunch of other vehicles especially at highway speeds. So, I'll punch it to get out of ahead of the crowd and then slow it down to say 5 over. There is just too many terrible things that can happen when vehicles are all bunched up together going 70MPH. I will also not tailgate. That only leads to nerves being shot, wrecks, or getting shot. LOL.

Because I’ve driven in other countries that have no speed limits on highways. Speed isn’t the issue/dangerous part, stupid drivers and people who sit in the right passing lane causing traffic to back up are the issue.

Have they posted an accident survey or anything on the areas that have an 85mph speed limit? Believe there is a stretch between Austin and SA? Not sure but would be interested to see if there was an uptick or not once the higher limit was set.

That being said, I’m a 10 over guy. Set the cruise control and go. Usually keeps me driving offensively instead of reacting to someone doing something stupid, I don't really worry about cops at that point and on long drives it is enough to make a difference on my arrival time.

I'm with you there. Only takes the one idiot a random tap of the brakes to cause a pile up. I like to set the cruise a few over and stay out of the fast lane. The slow pokes stay behind and the speeders pass me to get up to the next wad of slow pokes.

Well I guess I am in the minority. I speed probably daily but I also take a lot of toll roads. In the city i follow flow of traffic regardless of speed. I have multiple jobs going on in different parts of town, meetings, materials etc. I also leave early every day so traffic is not an issue. Has nothing to do with being late. If we are in a road trip from houston to Dallas Iím usually leading the speeder pack or right behind number one. I do not want to be jammed up on a freeway ever.

One more thing I am extremely considerate driver. I unlike many drivers will get out of the fast lane to let you pass. I pay attention to traffic and try and just get where I am going.

I only increase my speed on unobstructed stretches where I drive an hour or more. For every 5mph over it puts me 50 miles closer at the end of a 10hr drive.

On interstates and expressways I'm generally a "go with the flow" driver, unless the flow is 90+ or something. Driving that fast is not relaxing and I'm never in that big of a hurry. My frustration is usually on surface streets around town where judging by the way they are driving nobody ahead of me has to be wherever they are going at any particular time.

I am more important than those around me...so get out my **** way I got chit to do...


I kid. I actually rarely speed much these decades. When I was a kid it was for the thrill of being on the edge.

If that happens more than once or twice, I will hammer down and get far past them.
This right here....
I love it when idiots change lanes every 3 seconds, tailgate etc... and then at the next light I very slowly pull up behind them or right next to them. Seems like they never learn.


But just to make people's blood pressure rise, I love driving in the left lane and only go the speed limit
