    How many speeding tickets?

    How many speeding tickets have you gotten in your life? Personally, I've had 0! And I drive about 80mph on the freeways here (in California) and around 10-15mph over the speed limit sometimes on other streets. Residential is still 25mph though, I hate it when people zoom by on my street where kids play.
    I wish all my traffic went through AS174.

    im waiting on one now, got flashed by a speed camera the other day doing about 120kmph in a 80/70kmph..
    if i am 45 over the speed limit, i will lose my licence as i only got 6 demerit points left
    i hope i dont! because im still on probabation, and they dont suspend your licence they cancel it, so i have to do it all again.. :/
    in Australia we use kilometers per hour not miles for people wondering .
    its just so easy to speed though without really realizing.

    About that, yeah. In California on most highways its 65mph now, and on Interstate 5 at some points and a few other major roads it's been up at 70mph for a while.

    Wow... I wonder when it will be near 100! Or like the auto-bahn (sp?) with no limit .

    I can't imagine having anything similar to the Autobahn here in North America. We have so many crappy drivers, it would be total carnage out there.

    I've probably gotten a dozen to 15 speeding tickets in my lifetime. May seem like a lot, but that's spread over 28 years of driving...

    I haven't had any I walk fast, but not that fast

    I was in a cab once that was pulled over though. The driver turned the meter off while he did the "talking to cop bit"

    You haven't lived until you've gone over 100 MPH in a Volkswagon beetle on the autobahn. They make them better and faster over there, or at least did when I was there many years ago.

    No speeding tickets for me. Came close once, but as the cop was getting out of the car, a truck flew past doing what seemed like 80+ and he waved me off.

    got one .. it was silly 72 in a 55 mph zone .. sometimes cops just want to give tickets at the end of the month to fill their quota .. it's just plain stupid ..
