The 10 MPH Speeding Cushion May Soon Disappear

"No officer, I didn't know that. How fast did you say I was going?"

Have you ever had that exchange with a CHP officer?

It probably won't surprise you to learn that there's unspoken grace speed of about 10 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. No, I'm not advocating speeding, and I don't recommend it. No emails on that topic, please. For the record, you should drive the speed limit.

Especially now, since this survey came out. The various State Governors are likely to have something to say about it. And they intend to clamp down. So don't look for a break.

Insurance companies want you to slow down too, if purely for financial reasons.

But really, a friend of mine (no, not me) who attended traffic school said that statistics show that the average speeder gets there only a few minutes earlier.

Is it worth the risk?
