Several places in Utah have 80 mph. Nobody goes 80!!! Great place to make up time on I-70.

TX passed a law that is population dependent. Any county with less than X can post higher speeds (up to 85 right now). Glad to see OK too. I hope that means I don't have to drop from 75 on I35 anymore.

My understanding is that rural 65mph highways will bump up to 70, interstates that are now 70 will jump to 75, and turnpikes that are 75 will get the 80 speed limit.

I read those. That completely sucks. I have never gotten one for just slightly over but I have gotten a couple that were 100% bogus. And I had to pay them.

Here in Alberta Canada, they always write speeding tickets for 10+ miles/hr. A cop once told me that they are instructed to do so as there are few judges that would side with the police officer writing the ticket over a couple of mph. However 10 mph over leaves little doubt of guilt with the judge unless a calibrated radar unit can be proven un-calibrated before use. Of course we still have that nasty photo radar which is the equivalent of a cash machine for municipalities. No demerit points are issued for those however, and they do tend to follow the 10 mph over rule.

What I have found is smaller communities are much tougher on speed(revenue production activities) than state police, hiway patrolmen, etc.

When I first moved to New Mexico twenty plus years ago we had to visit the close by scenic areas and I promptly got pulled over for 26 in a 25!!!! The cop said 25 meant 25 so he gave me a warning. A year later I got pulled over in the same area for 27 in a 25 and got another warning. I got the message!!!

Your story reminds me of the time I had my new Bandit 1200 and took it to the east side of the Cascades (WA) to "see what it had". Well, it had 146 mph before I chickened out and backed off the throttle  EEK!

A few miles later I rolled into some small town and was pulled over for doing 37 in a 30. Ooops. If only he knew  Embarassment


I never did get a ticket for that 7 mph over the limit because the poor officer was dumbfounded on what to do with me: that "new" bike had yet to be registered in WA and I had only the sales paperwork from CA. He said that he SHOULD impound the bike right then and there, but he felt bad for me, as I would have no way to get home. So he told me ride directly home and register the bike. Yes sir!

Clueless rube. We have 45 days from the date of sale to register. Carry a copy of the sales receipt (even hand written if bought used) and you'll be fine. Impounding for 7 over would have had him laughed out of most traffic courts.
