    motorway drivers: MPH you aim for

    i've recently become a 70 mile a day motorway commuter, i tend to average at about 80 just to be on the safe side.

    what speed do you usually average at o the motorway?


    i sometimes go up to 90-100 when im gonna be late, but its a rare occasion

    depends what the occasion is to be fair, for economy i regularly do 65 in the left lane lol. i do sometimes hover around the 80 mark tho, its a nice speed to cruise at.

    Edit your poll needs a 60-70mph vote tbh mate.

    Stupid, pointless thread IMO!

    We all stick to 70mph ... amazed that people actually put in here that they do more than that anyway!

    At the end of the day, everyone speeds!

    lol you think police are checking up on these forums?

    i often overtake police cars going 75-80

    they only really care if you're above 85



    p.s. sorry for the pointless thread

    its not that pointless really. its interesting to know of the honest people which ones are the ones doing 60 in the left lane and who are the ones that just follow the traffic in the right lane doing whatever speeds the rep mobiles are doing be it 80/90 or more.

    i agree with roarstar ive overtook police cars doing more than 70mph and havent had any trouble, they know no one religiously sticks to the 70mph limit and it is safer for 1 lane to travel quicker than the other, would be way to dangerous if both lanes never moved at 70mph imo
