    Default How Fast on a Highway?

    Hi! Just wondering how fast can you usually go on a highway with a moderate amount of people on it with a PSL of 65 MPH?

    ~Thanks

    I usually go whatever the other people are doing, as long as it is still a safe speed. when i commute to go to class in the morning im usually in the passing lane using a rabbit, going about 85 mph. but it depends on the situation, some cases 85 mph will be too much. use caution at whatever speed your at, and sometimes the psl is the speed you really should be at lol

    i guess i'll kind of piggyback off this question, although i dont want to threadjack, but what do you think is the threshold, if you are not driving like an a-hole (weaving, not using blinkers, late braking) to get reported to HP by a civilian?

    EDIT: oh and in a 70, i'll do 85 to 95. in a 65, i do 75-85, and in a 55 i top out around 70 usually. anything under that and i try to keep it at 5-10 over

    You are like the kid who always asks if he can go to the bathroom and his mom is like why the **** do you keep asking me, but just says... "I don't know, can you?"

    .... depends on your car, skill, conditions, and the size of your balls... oh and your prudence for the safety of others, your own life, driver's license, etc.

    As fast as you can safely and comfortably drive. There's no magic number where your engine shuts down and your car turns into a pumpkin.

    Usually not over 85. Occasionally 90. However most of my driving is in central IN and IL where you could go about as fast as you wanted to. When I am in MA I go with the flow.

    55, 65, 70 is pretty meaningless to me as PSL as long as I stay under whatever state I'm in's reckless driving threshold.

    I cruise around 85 if traffic allows it, but I also open it up frequently.
