Do you guys speed?

I have a bad habit of speeding when the roads are empty or very little traffic. I was going 80 in a 50 yesterday and I guy followed me all the way to my work just so he could b***h at me. Is it seriously that big of a deal?

    I speed quite a bit when the situation safely allows it. I've been in vehicles with nervous drivers and know many get freaked out when you slip around them doing twice their speed, so I try not to do that. Open road or just a few cars hanging out in the right lane? I'll fricking punch it. Enough traffic to require anything but the gentlest weaving. Nah, usually not worth it. Maybe if I can see it'll get me to the front of a gaggle of normal/slow cars, but not always

    unless you were shooting around regular speed traffic, which I assume included him, he's just moronic. also doing that much more over the limit requires him to also speed to keep up with you just so he can whine about it, which is kind of gay

    Yeah. I get in the hooning mood occasionally. For most trips just rolling down the freeway I stick the cruise control at 9mph over and never exceed that though. Which is still technically speeding but the "don't pull me over" speed. Going exactly the speed limit is also sus.

      I drive 10-15mph over everywhere and do runs well into the 100s often. When I was younger I'd do 100+ every day, in HS I had a self challenge to go at least 125mph before going in to school. I have had 10-12 speeding tickets, but none in the last decade as of this year.

        coefficient of static friction is the limiting issue. every shitbox on the road is capable of locking up its tires in an emergency stop, which is why ABS is mandated. that is to say, big brakes make absolutely no difference in a one-time, non-repeated emergency stop.

      Accidents don't just happen spontaneously because you're going above some arbitrary speed that some moron at a desk came up with 20+ years ago, they happen because a moron was being moronic, regardless of what speed the moron was doing. Drive at whatever speed feels comfortable for the particular road you're on, but pay attention and don't be a fricking homosexual, it's literally that easy to not kill anyone.

        what gets me is the notion than some small increase in speed has a real decrease in safety.

        1mph => ~1.5feet per second
        so if your speed was 55, and you start going 70, that's just an additional 20 feet per second; it's really not a huge deal.

        • 3 weeks ago

          It is when you take into account that the square of the speed is what kinetic energy is proportional to, as well as mass.
          I'll use rational units and you convert back to burger if you like.
          55mph=88km/h (heil)=24.4m/s
          70mph=112km/h=31.1m/s
          24.4m/s squared=595m2/s2
          31.1m/s squared=967m2/s2
          967/595=1.62
          Meaning that for the same mass, your kinetic energy is 62% greater going those extra 15mph.

            >You're not any more likely to get in a wreck going 70 than you are doing 55
            Yes you are, in case you haven't noticed the altimetric design of highways (including not only the shape of the road itself but the length and position of yellow lines) responds to the visibility calculated based on the design speed. Basically the road can't impede vision of an object of a certain height from enough distance to stop from the design speed. Braking distance is influenced by reaction time and other factors.
            Not saying I'm against speeding or anything, just don't be delusional about it. My normal passing speed is 30 over the limit, but I don't pass over yellows. It's actually safer to pass quicker as you spend less time on the oncoming lane.

          • 3 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            BTW take a look at the sight distance section of AASHTO's Green Book (under chapter 3, elements of design).

            An extra 20 feet a second is absolutely a big deal, that's basically an extra car length each second.
            And that's not even accounting for other people misjudging your speed, or not seeing you come from behind an obstacle in time because of the additional speed.

            So basically you're saying it's dangerous to drive fast if you're a moron who doesn't pay any attention to road or traffic conditions and makes blind passes over yellow lines like a braindead Black person?

            And speeding reduces the margin you have to change your behavior to avoid an accident you moron.

            You seem autistically attached to this idea that speeding means "going as fast as possible and never changing your speed according to current conditions". If I'm going the speed limit and some dude doing 30 under decides to swerve out in front of me suddenly, I don't have any more reaction time than if I'm doing 30 over and some moron doing the speed limit does the exact same thing. You adjust your behavior, you give yourself space, and you watch for morons. It's really not that fricking complicated.

          • 3 weeks ago
            civil engineering stud

            No, what I'm saying is that "road conditions" are largely baked into the design as the road aims to provide just enough visibility for the design speed. Basically if there's some hill you'd need to excavate or some dip you'd need to fill, if the distances are good enough to brake at the design speed you don't bother. Same with yellow lines, they're painted based on the design speed. The yellow lines would have to be longer if the speed limit was raised.

            Speeding means you are twice as likely to not be in an accident. Most likely this comes from the rise in distracted driving and cell phone use.

Just cruising along, if i'm not paying attention to the speedometer i'll be at 80-90, while the tach isn't even past 3.5k

    (I live in bumfrick no-where oregon, so it's not like houston or phoenix where 80mph is relegated to the right lane, and even then you're risking being run off the road for driving too slow)

          N54 > N55.
          When you tell tunergays you have a 135i/335i, they ask "N54?" It was overbuilt stock because it was BMW's first production twin turbo motor so it had forged rods -- they're still not that strong -- and a forged crankshaft, which is actually very strong. The pistons aren't forged though. Can reliably run 500-600hp, the automatic transmissions start slipping at 600, but the manuals can handle like 900hp but you'll need to really build the engine and add fueling to get that power.
          N54s sound so good too.

            good to know, mine's a 2011 (n55) -- I'm terrified of the repair costs and age, so i drive it fairly conservatively. I want this old girl to last a while.

            are the memes about BMW's lack of reliability a meme stemming from 20 y/o knuckleheads driving a touring car as if it were a track car? My main worry is the transmission, it's unfortunately got one of those 7 speed dual clutch monstrosities that i can't help but feel is a ticking time bomb.

            so far I've replaced the valve cover and gasket, new coils, new plugs, reseated the injectors (the last knucklehead didn't install them properly, omitting the seals and rings for whatever reason). love the sound though, it's a bit weird almost hearing that deep sound coming from a fricking Barbie car. (it's an e88).

    Honestly it depends on the car though, my Fiesta ST will happily take a lot of B roads at close to triple figures on the longer straights or sweeping bends but I wouldn't bother on bigger A roads because it just isn't as enjoyable.

    The 330d I had before was shit on B roads but was in its element cruising along A roads or motorways at 100. It felt like crusing it below the speed limit was doing it a disservice.

    I drive 10-15mph over everywhere and do runs well into the 100s often. When I was younger I'd do 100+ every day, in HS I had a self challenge to go at least 125mph before going in to school. I have had 10-12 speeding tickets, but none in the last decade as of this year.
    It's not a big deal if you live outside the city and keep your eyes far ahead on the road.

      You've gotta push the limits, frequently, in spots you know are going to be safe (like with skateboarding). Over and over again, changing little things and seeing how they change outcomes.
      IDK it came naturally to me despite being a neurotic wreck (still) in every other part of life, I guess I played too many video games as a kid and just got used to fast-paced spacial awareness.

    I almost always test the people doing 65 in my local 50 on the way to work,
    How fast you really wanna go bud?
    Are you passing people just because, or do you really NEED to run down little old grammas on their way to the groceries?
    Got any courage to try passing me again after the 2nd time I floored it? I might actually let you just pass, I might speed up to 90 and keep her there for the next 5 miles.

    So far in the last year I've gotten into a to-work race with five cars, gone to my shitlimiter of 124mph (132 on these tires) eight times, hit >100 at least 50 times, pissed off probably over 50 people by now, pissed off a guy in a straight piped 300 SRT8 (way too loud but the sound when he finally went WOT was glorious, but damn that guy doesn't know how to turn), and I got an SS camaro with a wing to do some sketchy lane gap passing with 2 other cars and me going WOT and slow traffic ahead getting real frickin close.

    Yesterday on the way home I'm just chilling, guy ahead of me going a little less than 5 over, guy behind me keeping his distance. We're all like, 150 yards away from each other. For over 10 miles. And then for no reason at all, guy behind me wants to....Do 65 in a 50, to make the left turn onto the other main road into our small town first.
    Trigger pulled, I floor it, pass the other car that was ahead of me, pass that guy, and reach 115 by the time I need to threshold brake for the 45ft radius left turn.
    I slow down back to 55 on cruise, and the guy rockets up to my ass at 75-80mph but then just stays there the next 6 miles to the next main street.
    Fun

    Just this morning with some dumb beaner with a fatc**t wife, I did the "oh you wanna go 65?" thing to. He actually beeped at me the 2nd time he tried to pass.
    Like let's break this down into logic.
    What are you getting mad for? You want to go faster and I'm getting to 120MPH in less than ten seconds from 55. I'm not "in your way" for whatever speed you wanted and we're both going way faster than that now.

      Slower traffic keep right is the same level of law as the speed limit. You're just scared of driving and can't understand that others feel okay at those speeds. The right lane is specifically for you.

      This is really the key to what's going on with those kinds of morons, they don't actually want to be going faster, they just want to be "in front of everyone else" because they're too fricking braindead to understand that's not possible. They're the same homosexuals who will floor it to overtake someone just to cut in right in front of them to immediately take an exit when there was 300 feet of empty lane behind them that they could've just used to hit their exit at the same speed they were already going. Dumb homosexuals with inferiority complexes are 100% of what makes driving a chore in most places.

      Was on a trip a few days ago and on a long two-lane stretch I was just cruising in the right lane at a comfy speed, and every so often if I came up on a pack of cars going slower I'd pop over into the left lane just long enough to pass them, then back to cruising as soon as I was clear, but I came across a seething brownoid in a tiny little fiat that had no business even being on the interstate who got visibly enraged that I passed him for some reason, despite the fact that he'd been tailgating an 18 wheeler for at least a few miles in the right lane. So when I settled in to the right lane after passing him, a few minutes later here he comes pushing his shitbox to its absolute limit to get enough speed to barely pass me then cuts in with less than a foot of space in front of me. So of course, I just pass him again along with the next pack of cars I see, settle back into the right lane, and a few minutes later again here he comes taking years off his transmission's life just for the sole purpose of getting directly in front of me in a vehicle that I'm fairly certain I could roll overtop of without puncturing a tire. Kept that up for like an hour, kek.

      you are what you accuse others of. if you're so concerned for the safety of the road why do you egg them on way past the speed they were trying to go? if they're so insecure about passing you then why don't you just let them pass and chase after? the reason they are rightfully pissed and want to pass you so bad is they can see you're a self righteous little b***h who has a tiny defensive ego that can't let things go. they want to end the confrontation as quickly as possible, while you insist on prolonging and escalating it. people like you are the reason we can't have an autobahn in the states. you get personally offended when someone tries to pass. slower traffic keep right.

    Yes another 300 dollar ticket recently. Dozens of tickets over the years and court mandated classes. Speeding is my reminder that this country lost all it's freedom. Not even 40 years ago they had dozens of highways and interstate with no limits. Its all to generate revenue not to keep people safe.

    In my area the minimum safe speed you can do on the interstate is 15 over the posted speed limit because anything under that and you're running the risk of some moron rear-ending you because they didn't feel like paying attention.

    cops won't even pull you over for doing 85 on freeways with posted speed limits of 65-70 at least if its the speed of traffic. cop was tailing me for several while i was almost going 90 then passed me on the right because i wasn't going fast enough for him after the right lanes became open. the ones on the side of the road with radar guns don't care either.

      In my country there's speed cameras that fine you instead. And speeding is never a felony, if you go twice the limit you get a misdemeanor instead and have to do some community service.

    I do 10-15 over on the freeway, which is what pretty much everybody does in my area. I stick pretty close to the limit on normal streets aside from a few specific ones where everybody speeds and you're a road hazard if you actually follow the limit. (The main street leaving my neighborhood is like that, posted as 35 but it's a 4-lane road with very few intersections/driveways and everybody does 45+.)

      This is the biggest reason speeding is so common. Dumbasses design roads that are basically highways then put up a sign that says "btw drive at 1/5 the speed that feels natural for this road, okay?" and expect people to listen.

      The main road near my house is 4 lanes in each direction with a posted speed limit of 45mph with tons of driveways opening directly onto it, but go a few miles up that road to where it crosses city lines and they drop the speed limit to 35 despite the fact that it's just as wide and there are no more houses connected to it at that point. The fact that morons like

      >You're not any more likely to get in a wreck going 70 than you are doing 55
      Yes you are, in case you haven't noticed the altimetric design of highways (including not only the shape of the road itself but the length and position of yellow lines) responds to the visibility calculated based on the design speed. Basically the road can't impede vision of an object of a certain height from enough distance to stop from the design speed. Braking distance is influenced by reaction time and other factors.
      Not saying I'm against speeding or anything, just don't be delusional about it. My normal passing speed is 30 over the limit, but I don't pass over yellows. It's actually safer to pass quicker as you spend less time on the oncoming lane.

      pretend that speed limits are actually based on any kind of objective or useful criteria and not just made up on the spot by morons who have no idea what they're doing is fricking hysterical.

    I bought a Mustang recently and have started speeding only slightly. It's an Ecoboost so it doesn't have the intimidating power, but I do like to hear the little power it does have when I accelerate a little faster than usual. I'm usually going about 5-15 miles over the limit but nothing excessive.

    When you mean going over the speed limit by any amount, then yes, I speed. I speed quite a bit of my time on the road.
    But usually it's not excessive; like 5-20 kph over.
    Only on roads where the road speed and the mandatory speed is completely mismatched (ie. a four lane road with ditches on either sides, no side roads where the max speed is still something like 50kph), i'll go over much more; but honestly only on relatively calm roads with no intersections.
    On unfamiliar roads I tend to adhere a bit more to the suggested speed limit since I don't know where the speed traps are.

    Not really. At 55mph I get 38mpg and at 80 it goes down to 20mpg. It’s autistic but idgaf about getting somewhere 3 minutes sooner just to fill my tank 1/3 times sooner. Other than that stroads are so shitty I normally stop at every light anyways.
    But whenever I buy a new vehicle I do a top speed test

    Rarely. I try to go the speed of traffic. Even on open roads I keep it within 10 mph of the speed limit.

    Where I live speeding on the highway is so universal that going up to 15mph over usually won't even get a second look from the highway patrol, who are often casually speeding themselves. You only really have to pay attention to heightened enforcement periods, like holidays or when there is event traffic, and there are certain areas with regularly staffed speed traps, but everybody knows where those are and generally only kids and through travellers get caught in them.
