    I set my speed limit alarm to plus 10 mph. Set it off constantly, but it keeps me from going 20 mph over. Anyone not have it set? How many tickets do you have? Lol

    lol, I don't have it set

    If I'm following traffic = usually no ticket
    If I'm ahead of traffic = always risk of ticket
    If I'm driving somewhere long distance = I'm usually not at risk for a ticket, as I'm not doing more than 75mph to reduce charge time.

    I can't recall the exact setting, but I know my speed limit sign gets larger as soon as I've gone 10mph over. (Who knows what it does with 8.0, just got that this morning).

    I don't pay any attention to it as it's pretty common to see most cars going 10mph over around here. I almost always follow traffic with autopilot in the center lane, so I'm usually averaging somewhere between 8 and 10mph over..nothing excessive.

    USUALLY if I'm on a road that I'm likely to go 15+ mph over... (wide open freeway) I've got autopilot on so I'm not going any sort of crazy speed. Autopilot makes me a safer (slower) driver! :)

    Have never used it. That's what Laser jammers are for.

    Waze tells me about Policemen en-route. I only ever drive where another Waze driver has already been recently, and has diligently reported any Hazards en route ... <Thud!>
