I think I did. Not sure which highway it was but the speed limit was 130. So I did the responsible thing and went 135.

You may be in control but you never know how people around you will react; you wouldn't want someone's accident on your conscience.

Yeah i'm gonna be taking it easy for while... *sigh*

Ha, look at the saints in this thread.

I don't get tickets, i obey the speed limit, which is why i bought a sports car to drift in parking lots.

Don't feel bad, just slow down a bit and watch the roads.

Don't believe that these guys only use the power of their cars on the track only, cause that's complete bullshit and i'd bet my right nut on it.

i was once on the way to pay a photo radar ticket. on the way there i got a laser radar ticket..... if you drove this road you would understand it should be 60km/h and not 50km/h i was going 63 or something.

does that make you feel better?

Pulled over for going 130mph in the Evo on the local tollroad around Dallas. I was carrying 150mph on the speedo right before I got hit by the cop. Showed the LEO how peeved I was for getting pulled over. Gave me a lecture, wrote up the ticket...continued speeding to my destination.

Could've got the car impounded and arrested. Cop was too damn lazy. There's always time and a place. Choose wisely.

That's the opposite of how it is in my area....

And wait a minute, @marine321 got pulled over in the drive through of McDonald's ? Why?

I'll admit that i take a racing line down cloverleafs. Though, i'm typically not speeding or squealing tires or anything-- i'm just getting my bag-ass GMC Safari up to speed faster than i would if i took the onramp like a typical van. The thing is a big heavy beast, but it's surprising how well it can still take an out-in-out cloverleaf.

Good one! I was referring to State Highway 130 running from Austin to San Antonio; I read in an article that the posted speed limit is 85 mph.
