    How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    As I was driving home for Christmas, I got to wondering: how fast do you all usually drive on the Interstate? For me, I like to stay around 5 over. This is for Interstate only, NOT expressways/tollways/freeways/or in town. This is assuming dry conditions and not in a hurry to get anywhere.
    Discuss.

    Depends on the destination,how early/late I am running, conditions, etc. Normally about 5-8 mph over.

    I just edited the post, but this is assuming dry conditions and not in a hurry.

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    I am usually around 7-8 over. I get away with it a lot easier in South Dakota. I'm always cautious when first entering Iowa and then I speed up the farther in I go.

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    I love when people go 80 in the 55 zone at the end of I43 in Wisconsin and the state patrol officer does nothing


    It's a terrible plan, but I like it so let's do it.

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    I usually go about 6-8 mph over. I figure that's right on the edge where the po-po pigs give me a warning hopefully

    Is this related to that Wisconsin icy road video?

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    Normal conditions, 15-20 over....not a fan of people cruising in the left lane. Usually driving somewhere for work that is 4-5 hrs away.

    If kid is in the car, then I drive the speed limit.

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    Between ames and dm 80 ( there really is no place for an officer to turn around, just slow down at on ramps)
    between ames and hwy 20 75
    I80 to IC typically 75-78 but its easy to find a pack and jump in and go 80
    I235 between Ankeny/WdM 5-8 over never more than 10 bc of cameras


    Always within 5 mph over in commercial vehicles for work.

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    I feel like people are afraid to put 10+ over because of the ridicule they will get for being so reckless from everyone.
