The time it takes to go 1 mile at 55 MPH: 65.45 seconds.

The time it takes to go 1 mile at 60 MPH: 60 seconds.

The time it takes to go 1 mile at 65 MPH: 55.38 seconds.

The time it takes to go 1 mile at 70 MPH: 51.43 seconds.

The time it takes to go 1 mile at 75 MPH: 48 seconds.

The time it takes to go 1 mile at 80 MPH: 45 seconds.

The time saved by going 60 in a 55 zone: 5.45 seconds per mile. Is a "5 over" speeding ticket worth it? 10 miles of this doesn't even save you a minute (54.5s)!

The time saved by going 65 in a 55 zone: 10.07 seconds. Is a "10 over" speeding ticket worth it? Ten miles of this saves just over a minute and a half (1m 40.7s).

Time saved by going 70 in a 55 zone: 14.02 seconds per mile. Is a "15 over" speeding ticket worth it? Ten miles of this saves 2 minutes, 20.2 seconds.

Time saved by going 75 in a 55 zone: 17.45 seconds per mile. Is a "20 over speeding ticket worth it? Ten miles of this saves less than 3 minutes (2m 54.5s).

Time saved by going 80 in a 55 zone: 20.45 seconds per mile. Is a "25 over" speeding ticket worth it? Ten miles of this saves 3m 24.5s. How about just leaving 5 minutes sooner and going 55?

You see, THAT'S what the police DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW! They WANT to hand out speeding tickets! They have QUOTAS to meet! Time is money; you DON'T save much time, but you CAN lose A LOT of money!

Ugh I am good at math, the argument is pointless because it's called RISK. Philosophically, RISK is what you take to get somewhere faster.........the odds of you getting pulled over aren't that great IF you know how to avoid it anyway, Generally, they don't pull you over for going 10 miles over......they're looking for 15+ cause the ticket cost DOUBLES in the majority of municipalities and states.........

Okay, but the RISK is over a couple lousy minutes. You're also dealing with reduced reaction time in case shit happens.

And in my area, they are BIG on hitting you for 5 over ("3 or 4, I will ignore, but you hit 5, I come alive." -direct quote from a local cop), so...

Well, sorry that the cops are assholes where you live then.....a lousy couple of minute make all the difference sometimes when you're trying to get somewhere!

Is it really so hard to leave 5 minutes earlier? Surely not.

Nope, but getting somewhere you want to be sooner is always a plus, especially if you CAN'T leave 5 mins earlier........derp

Technically, they can pull you over for just 1 over (speed LIMIT). I know they DON'T, but still...

And I don't buy it. NOTHING is SO important that a few minutes makes such a big difference. You seem stubbornly juvenile. "Derp" didn't help to dissuade that impression.

As I mentioned, your reaction time is reduced, also:
15.4% less reaction time when going 65 in a 55 zone
14.3% less reaction time when going 70 in a 60 zone
13.3% less reaction time when going 75 in a 65 zone
12.5% less reaction time when going 80 in an 70 zone

If you truly don't get it, then perhaps you are not mature and responsible enough to be operating a potentially deadly machine.

The problem with the equation is distance traveled. Speeding to drive the 5 miles to work faster is a risk that you might be pulled over and lose more time than you tried to save with the added fine that makes going to work more about paying the violation than earning income for yourself. Moral? Leave earlier.

Now I travel 1200 miles each way twice a year by car to visit family. The added savings of pushing the limit at which the police will pull you over now can add up over an hour saved in travel time or more. That is a real savings that might be worth a ticket that only eats into 15 minutes of that hour plus saved. I still don't want a ticket, so i keep it within 10 miles of the speed limit. No cop has so much as looked at me.

Yeeaaahhhh..... Seriously not seeing your point. I assume you're taking highways with higher than 55 MPH speed limits. The funny thing is, the time savings LESSENS at higher speeds:

Going 70 in a 60 zone saves 8.57 seconds per mile.
Going 75 in a 65 zone saves 7.38 seconds per mile.
Going 80 in a 70 zone saves 6.43 seconds per mile.
Going 85 in a 75 zone saves 5.65 seconds per mile.
Going 90 in a 80 zone saves 5 seconds per mile.
Going 95 in an 85 zone saves 4.46 seconds per mile.

I don't know of any places where the limit is above 85, so I'll stop there.

But you say you can save an hour... so:
If the average speed limit is 60, that's 19 hours instead of 20 hours.
If the average speed limit is 65, that's 17.46 hours instead of 18.46 hours.
If the average speed limit is 70, that's 16.14 hours instead of 17.14 hours.
If the average speed limit is 75, that's 15 hours instead of 16 hours.
If the average speed limit is 80, that's 14 hours instead of 15 hours.

Looked at in the overall, I don't see much advantage, to be honest. And you'd have the added peace of mind of knowing there's NO CHANCE of getting a speeding ticket.

Drive safe, my friend.

Most of I95 has a speed limit of at least 70, so doing 80 is very possible without the risk of a ticket. But I do get your point. I do the speed limit locally, but only push the 10 over when traveling long distance as it does have an actual time savings.

And to date, 1 ticket very early in my driving carrier of almost 40 years now. My friend said let's take my sports car and use his radar detector. came over the rise and the cop was standing there with the gun. He pointed it, the radar detector lit up and I pulled over before he could tell me to. Got the lightest ticket possible because I did that. He thanked me for not making him chase me down. :)

Oh and another fun factor today. All of the police in my area have license plate readers.
