I pretty much stopped going more than five miles over the speed limit because I love myself, my family and my friends. Also, it doesn’t really save that much time. 3 years ago
How I did it: ok so i'm a lead foot. i always will be so i cant really say ive stopped stopped speeding, just, dont do it as often, slowed down on the 'frequency' of my speeding! lol
decided taht after getting a $202 fine for going 9km over the speed limit in Adelaide was enough 2 make me want 2 slow down.
Also, going to work- driving there in the morning- i tend to go a lot slower under the limit than what i used to when on the free way- i'm on 90 sometimes, usually i 10km over the limit! so i have deff slowed down... but going home 2 the olds is a different story- i just wanna get there.

Definitely got caught going 35 miles over the speed limit… The ticket would have 310 but he had sympathy for me and only wrote it for 9 miles… It is 89 dollars so I am happy about that but I really have to stop speeding… This is getting expensive… 4 years ago
I got caught again!
A month ago i got a 300 dollar speeding fine….not cool. I paid it and moved on and started to slow down. Then last night i was heading back from the gym and bang got flashed! I think i was doing atleast 15 over…so thats 200 bucs down the drain. So LAME! I just read a post about there being so many seconds in the day and whats the point of speeding to save a few. Not worth it.
Im sick of wasting money. 4 years ago
Last night I was witness to a fatal car accident…
As I was driving home from the gym. The VW golf flew by me doing at least 100mph. Less then a ‘klick’ ahead was huge dip in the road cause by a golf cart under pass. Everyone in the neighborhood knows of this ‘dip/bump’. It dips down then crest really quick over a hill to a stop light. A fairly busy intersection. If you hit this bump fast, your airborne! ...Sure enough….bout 15 seconds later…I drive through the dust/reck ball/mess. It was horrid; the car was pan-caked horizonatial on its side bisected by the light pole. Like…woah. So after a brief moral hesitation I decided to park and go throught the numbers with the cops and detectives. (Lol the detective actually offered me a job…lol 80k a year starting..lol)..
I’ll finish this later…..I’m getting alot better at this sight reading while practicing my violin…and its….kind of addictive… 5 years ago
I would like for you to try a simple experiment, begging of course for your cautious judgment on the proper place and time to try something so generally infuriating and altogether dangerous as simply driving the posted speed limit. For this experiment I would like for you to get onto any highway in the United States, accelerate to the posted speed limit, and set your cruise control. If my theory stands, regardless of the time of the day or the driving conditions, you will be the only person driving the speed limit. In fact, I’ll bet that even in the slow lane, you will be going too slow for the rest of traffic and will be hurriedly passed, honked at and in worst case scenarios you will be cussed in a variety of manners and methods! Why? Why do so many Americans hate (and disregard) the laws that protect us from ourselves, save precious resources and generally create a better community and country? Well I for one have stopped contributing to the insanity and am a happier, healthier, much more hopeful human being than I was just a few short months ago… 5 years ago
I must try harder to stop speeding- I will try not to EVER go over the limit- I will try to pay more attention to my speed as I drive- I will not justify my speeding. I will remember that God is watching me. Speeding is dangerous- and when we speed- we could hurt someone or worse- and then because we were speeding- we can be charged for it. We must be careful and DONT speed. It IS possible to NEVER speed- Let us all be NON- speeders. 5 years ago
Last night, Chris and I were talking about all of the laws we brake and, well, this came up. It’s stupid, expensive and dangerous. I don’t even think it makes that big of a difference.
There are 86,400 seconds in a day. Why speed to save a few of them? 5 years ago
so i bought a new mustang gt a month ago…
i pass cars using the opposite lane with double yellow lines…
my pedal is to the floor every second of my ride…
my wheels dont stop spinning…
i get on the turnpike just to cruise at 130mph…
how do i help myself…
i cant stop…
(looks both ways)(takes a deep breathe)
...sell the stang? 5 years ago
I decided that last thursday, when a guy at school died in a car accident. So many people my age are getting in car accidents, and I think alot of them could be prevented by simply driving the speed limit. I’ll also try to drive safer 5 years ago
I stopped speeding not too long ago. It makes life nice. Yea, it takes a little longer to get place but when cops are around you don’t have that moment of, “OH CRAP!!! Am I going to get pulled over?” With that pit in your stomach. It’s great! 5 years ago
lol havent gotten pulled over yet knocks on wood but i kno i will one day gotta slow it down man!! 5 years ago
I find myself speeding whenever I drive. Whenever there is an open lane, I have to pass other cars and I don’t know why. I’m always breaking the speed limit. I’ve heard that speeding is highly addictive especially if you are depressed but I don’t think I am a depressed person. Yet I find myself having to speed everywhere. Driving has always been very soothing to me and has helped me relax in tense situations, but my speeding seems to get worse as I get older. I have been getting speeding tickets since I started driving which taught me quickly how to fight them in court.
Now, I have been married for less than a year. My wife is often scared at the way I drive, but I always find myself making excuses for my constant speeding. I know she is concerned for my saftey and that I will get into a bad accident, but for some reason that is not enough for me. I still speed and now it is becoming a big problem for not only myself but also my family.
I received a bad speeding ticket that I was required to show up in court. I was convicted and received 8 points on my licesne. I also have another court date from an earlier ticket that I have to appear for in October. I promised myself and my wife that I would slow down and that it was getting out of hand. Again, it wasn’t enough and I received ANOTHER speeding ticket today. If I’m convicted for either of these tickets I will lose my license. Aside from the increase in insurance, without a drivers licesne, my wife will be stuck with driving everywhere. I know this is not fair and I can’t afford to do this anymore. We just bought a house and already I’m making things harder just from my inability to slow down.
Speeding is a big issue for me and I have to stop, but I don’t know why I won’t learn my lesson. I don’t want to put this burden on my family. 5 years ago
I’ve learned to slow down, as well as to bless the slow person (angels) in front of me who has also in the past prevented me from getting a ticket or being involved in a serious collision.
For those who like to speed—look up the traffic death statistics from NHTSA and rethink your position. Traffic deaths are the number one way to die in most age groups in the US and also more than 40,000 die each year—think about that next time you attend a baseball game! 5 years ago
I still speed on occasion, but that’s usually when I’m driving an automatic, lucky for me my cars a standard. Don’t ask me why that makes a difference for me, it just does. I think I just can’t in all good conscious shift up to the next gear if it means I’ll then be speeding, something I don’t have to worry about in an automatic. Whatever it is, I’m glad, I hate worrying about getting a ticket all the time because I can’t seem to let off the gas! Yay! I thought I’d never be able to mark this goal done! To all of you still trying to manage it, if I can do it, you can do it! 5 years ago
but now I don’t really think so.twice in the last week I’ve gotten somewhere in 9 or 10 minutes when it should have taken me 15. Yeah, I was in a huge hurry, but… I’ve got to stop speeding man. I really don’t know how I’ve managed to not get a ticket yet. So, I guess it’s back to my original problem, procrastination. Then again.. like ordinarymathgirl, “I love fast!” It started out as pretty much necessary because I was running late, now it’s almost like an addiction. Don’t know guys.. might have to give up on this one. 5 years ago
But I still cheat from time to time.
I love fast! 6 years ago
I am a procrastinator. Therefore, I am always running late. Which leads me to speed. When I speed I run the risk of getting a ticket (been lucky so far), which would be really bad. When I speed I don’t usually mess around. I am also addicted to speed. I used to only speed when I “had to” so I could get to where I needed to be, when I needed to be there, now it is an addiction. Which is why the fact that I stayed within two to ten miles over the speed limit, and sometimes even at the speed limit, the last time I drove is a big step. If I can stop speeding when I’m not in a hurry, I’ll be better off. If I can stop procrastinating (which is on my list on here) and therefore not have to worry about rushing off to wherever I’m trying to get, it’ll be even better. 6 years ago
I’m gonna consider this one finished. Most of my “speeding” is keeping with traffic. Which is rather scary. 6 years ago
Maybe if i didn’t try and do a million things in a day I wouldn’t want to get wherever I am going so quickly! But I love jamming as much as I can into a day! 7 years ago
I’ve heard all the warnings about speed killing etc etc. I don’t believe that speed ills in isolation, it is more about driving too quickly for the conditions, or driving too close to the car in front.
Anyhow, I habitually drive a good deal faster than I should on motorways (never on regular roads). However, with all the variable speed limits and unmarked police cars it hardly seems worth the risk. Therefore I shall slow down to about 75 and reap the benfits of increased MPG….. 7 years ago
Whoa is it worth doing. I feel so much less nervous when I drive, and have saved some cash. Score! 7 years ago
Sometimes though, people don’t speed to save time, they speed becasue they’re addicted to the speed, they’re upset or something along those lines. Lately I’ve been driving just about as fast as I can to and from work, not to get there and home in any shorter amount of time, but because lately I’ve been severly depressed. I often do in excess of 100 mph when possible but usually it’s more like 90 (traffic). I’m very cautious, always keep my eyes open, never talk on the phone or anything like that, and ALWAYS use my blinker, well in advance of changing lanes. Of course, all of that doesn’t mean that I won’t get into a horrible accident and die and maybe take somebody else with me. I’ve been trying to battle this depression for years now and I think one of the contributing factors to it (not as a result of it, interestingly enough) is the speeding. There was a time when I did the speed limit, just chilled out and let people pass me. I never used the fast lane. And you know, I was a lot happier. Probably not as a direct result but I wasn’t always amped up every time I got into my car and went somewhere. It’s actually pretty calming and relaxing to do 70 mph than it is to do 110. What’s more, speeding can become like a drug. I know that in recent weeks of my speeding I’ve noticed myself becoming addicted to it. 80 is no longer fast enough, my norm is 90 now. I find myself wanting to go driving with no destination just so I can feel the rush of adreneline that comes with blowing past someone who IS doing the speed limit and feeling like they’re standing still. It is extremely self-destructive, can land you in jail or worse can kill you and any other relatively innocent motorist. The point is, people don’t always speed to save time. It can become extremely addicting on a physical level (much like people who sky-dive or hunt) and will almost certainly lead to an untimely demise. Driving isn’t safe. You can crash and die at 45 mph just the same as you can at 110 mph. But speeding increases the potential exponentially, and no matter how depressed or suicidal you are, in that final moment just before you hit someone while speeding you will be thinking “oh my God, I don’t want to die.” Think about that. 7 years ago
Well I still have my moments….but overall I’m not nearly as bad as I used to be. It’s hard to stick to the speed limit where I live because unfortunately the highways here are over run with speed demons. So if you value your life you will speed up a little more to stay out of their way.
However I used to just drive foolishly…....but when we got our new car I was afraid to damage it so that slowed me down a lot.
I never got a speeding ticket but after being in three accidents (honestly only one was my fault) it was a wake up call too. 7 years ago
