100-110 is normal. What's the hurry... and besides... it's not worth getting a ticket for.

to work and back. or around here short trips on the highway minimum 140.

when i go to london or long trips then i set the cruise control at 129 or so hehe just to stay under 130 in case i get pulled over for and saves a lot of gas too.

Speed

I have to agree with everyone that has said its not worth the Tickets. The tickets I can afford its the INSURANCE that kills all your funn!! Personally I now try to do around 110 to 115km only cause ummm $650/m insurance 6 speeding tickets (4 for 15 over, and 2 for 20 over), and 1 careless (that was a bogus charge!!!!)

The Nice TORONTO Police decided to do a ride program on the Gairdner and well all my friend were Drunk I was the DD they wanted me to do a Road Side Sobriety Test (legally you can decline) this is what I did, but I said I would par take in a Actuall Test Performed By a Alc Meter at a station!! I only said this cause all my friends were wasted litterally!!! I a beer or two but nothing really to bother me!! So yeah I get my free ride to Down Town they do the test and first blow was 52 So I was thinking ok lets go home now.... Uhhh no I was wrong They wanted to do one more OK fine what ever its only going to go down simple science would tell you that, and what a surprise my second was 41mg... So yeah now I really think ok lets go home its now 3:30 and where the hell is my BMW?? but anyway long and short of it was I left with a ticket for DUI and Dangerous Operations and a 24hr Suspension!!!! So yeah I calleed my Lawyer!!! Anyway settled for a Careless Driving No Suspension $1000 fine & 6points. Did I mention I WAS FREAKING BELLOW THE 80mg LEGAL DRINKING LIMIT!!!!!! But yeah I couldn't be bothered to drag it out any longer. I did not end up with a Criminal Record (dangerous operation CCPC (canadian criminal penal code) and I still left with out a suspension..

Ahh well, yeah so I drive the Limit, I no longer drink period, and I do not Provide any Provacation for any Attention by the local Athority. its much better that way I just cant wait to see my insurance go down!!!!! Ahhh all the toys I could have on my car.. ahhh crapp!!!!

Gamite, I can't beleive you said that you are pushing her at 140. 140 feels fine in my car, just like 120. When I am stoned I usually drive a bit quicker like 135. I have had 1 ticket, and it was 145 in a 100 and took it to court.

When traffic is around, it is different. But hey, the car can well handle it, and I am not riping by a lot at 140, most people are driving quick anyway.
