how do you drive?

Well, I was curious on how people drive. I drive speed limit but I show off sometimes and such. Do you drive fast all the time or do you cruise around everywhere you go?

Most of the time I drive 5-10 over the limit. I usually get up to speed from a stop pretty quickly just because it is fun. In areas where I know police are usually hiding I usually do the speed limit and try not to take off from stops so quickly.

I drive 5 - 10 MPH over. Sometime more...........


Do burnouts everyonce in a great while.

The only time I really drive stupid is in the snow. I love drift busting and driving sideways. Its so so so much fun

I usually float about 5 - 10 above on highways and stay about the limit on the back roads. I have only ever gotten one ticket... and he became one of my best friends... Gotta love that...

Driving fast is expensive and doesn't get you where you're going substantially faster. I usually drive between the limit and 5 over.

I drive like a gawd-dang bat outta hell with his tail feathers on fire everywhere I go, except when my daughter or wife (or both) are with me. In my truck, though...there's only room for one passenger, so it's usually just me and that means

Move over or I'll run you over!!!

Note: The above comment is attributed solely to the fact this person drives a 4-cylinder. If he had some real power, he would drive much more conservatively (and fuel-efficiently!).

i dunno what to vote at...

if im around town, i'll do the speed limit, no higher.

if im in my neighborhood (which is posted at 25), i'll do about 15.

however... if im on a highway, i'm always in the left lane passing everyone. the speed limit on a few of the highways i use is either 55 or 65... i'm normally around 85 then. unless there's traffic.. then i know i dont need to bother because i'm just going to be sitting on the road sooner or later

i never show off at all. never race people off the line or anything. someone cuts me off merging... whatever... nothing happened, and he is now 14 feet further than me.. no big deal.
