    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    I like to go about 6 or 7 over. Knock on wood, but that has gotten by through many a speed trap without getting pulled over. I guess eventually some cop on a slow day might have to settle for that, but I gotta feeling they are looking for a legit 10-12 over the speed limit at minimum.

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    Just did Ames to Akron, Ohio. My average speed was 81.8 over the 700-800 miles it is.

    I usually go about 12-15 over. This time I was in Chicago, just trying to keep up with the traffic on I-80/90 and I didn't realize how fast we were going until we passed a couple ambulances with their lights on. We were going 95 in a 55. I slowed down...


    My teams: (as of 9/20/13)
    Cleveland Browns: 0-2 - .000
    Cleveland Indians: 83-70 - .542
    Cleveland Cavs: 24-58 - .293
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 0-2 - .000

    9/22/18 & 9/7/19
    Akron and Iowa State

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    I usually go between 8-10 over on the interstate, and 5-7 everywhere else. Of course, I live in Cedar Rapids, so the three lanes of 380 is left lane-5 over, middle lane-speed limit, right lane-5 under. The worst drivers in the state live here.

    This is actually quite common. I do a lot of work in the Quad Cities and I commute from Des Moines and it is not uncommon to see people go 80-85 on that stretch on I-80. Most of the time they have Illinois plates. Traffic tends to slow down between the speed traps that are usually set-up: just East of Bondurant and the last rest area before you hit I-380.

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    I'm usually about 5 to 7 over. With the 75mph speed limit in Nebraska, I am able to get out of the state in no-time!

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    I did 80 the whole way from Northern Iowa to Indianapolis today. Including in Illinois where it dips to 65 instead of 70.

    Re: How fast do you drive on the Interstate?

    It depends on the time. In the morning, I get almost run off the road doing 8 over. At night, I take what I can get. F Houston traffic.

    I235 between Ankeny/WdM 5-8 over never more than 10 bc of cameras


    Always within 5 mph over in commercial vehicles for work.
    Found this one out the hard way in September :/.
    Usually 7-10 over. Except the tollways in the Chicago suburbs, 80 in a 55 is just staying with traffic.
