What speed do you guys see/find as acceptable on the freeways and highways in the States?? I was curious because one comment from one of the guys here that got pulled at 3mph over the posted limit!

In the UK we have a 70mph limit on the motorways (same as your highways I think), and we can quite happily get away, most times, at driving/riding at 80mph past the cops, and general road speed is around 80 - 90 mph for a lot of people who drive/ride on the motorways.

So what is the general speed that you can safely travel at on your highways without getting pullled??

Over the past few months here, we have had a few people, one in a car, and two on bikes who have been jailed for exceeding the posted limit [:0]

one guy was disqualified though, so it serves him right, he was caught in Scotland I think it was doing 156mph in a BMW M3.

the other two guys were caught by a speed camera, doing 157mph on a ZX12R and 148mph on a ZX7R in a 70 mph limit. They were also charged with dangerous driving. If I am correct they were only jailed for about 3 months, you know, along with murderers, rapist, kiddly fiddlers, muggers, etc etc etc.

Another guy about 3 years ago got caught at 179mph on a fireblade (again if my memory serves me correctly) and he was jailed for 12 months, the justice system in England is totally fooked up I tell ya.
