I love watching Ky troopers videos on the real world police YT channel, they’re total badаssesA friend of mine is a KY State Trooper; he told me that a lot of the phoned in reports of impaired drivers turn out to be elderly people driving slow and holding up other traffic.
I got a ticket once for 17 in a 15, seriously. It was in Fayetteville NC and I was in the Army. Cops targeted military because they knew we had to basically pay and shut up. Hated the cops there ;0I've heard that 10% over is allowed. That's not official of course and you could get a ticket for 51 in a 50 zone but I've never heard of it.
I used to live in Edmonton which is a fairly big city. There seemed to be different rules during rush hour. Everyone was driving the same speed and (shall we say) a bit fast. And I never saw a radar trap during rush hours, or a crash either.
I suppose the theory is that working people are mostly good drivers, and everyone is driving on a familiar route, and in a good vehicle so the police should just stay out of the way and let them get to work.
The bad drivers seemed to come out later, the ones who don't stop at 4 way stops, or change lanes without looking, etc. Between rush hours the speed laws were enforced.
Dash set on Metric? You think you are doing 40 MPH, but really doing 40KPH (about 25MPH)???My wife and I were traveling on a road we never used before. I have a digital dash
so I knew I was going 40 as the sign said. I got pulled over by a cop and
he tells me I was going too slow WTF !!!!????
whenever im in illinois it’s basically a free for all
the speed limits on i55 heading towards chicago is usually 60-65. state police will ignore you until about 90mph+.
without traffic the left lane hogs cruise at about 85, the middle passing lane at 80 and the rightmost is usually 70-75. navigating this is like an obstacle course, i hate having to do triple digit passes from the right and people not moving over even when flashed.
80/94 in Lake County Indiana is basically the Indianapolis 500... 55mph limit but you better be doing 65 minimum in any lane except the furthest most left lane where it seems to be 80+.Welcome to Illinois! One of the states with the worst drivers IMO (FL and CA top the list though.) The moment you cross the state lines into IL you can tell the difference in drivers - god forbid you have to cross in via 90/94 to Chicago. Here you'll almost always be safe doing 75 in a 65, 70 in a 55, and 80 in the morning/evening rush hour. Almost nobody moves out the left lane within 30 miles of the city and you'll still get people tailgating you when you're cruise controlling at 70mph in the middle or right lane at 3AM. Nobody uses cruise control either so you'll constantly have to play leap frog on a 4-lane highway.
