When I bought mine, Tesla threw in a little feature to help. It displays a number on the console telling me how fast I am traveling. It’s pretty accurate, so I use it to help ensure I’m not going too fast. So far, all the software updates haven’t removed it.
You can be driving on a road and spend your energy watching traffic while overtaking someone and not realize how fast you are going. TeslaFi lets you know though. I'm still programmed to floor it to pass people. Since we are going to blame cars for things here I blame my first car - the world class Chevy Chevette - in programming my mind to floor the accelerator all the time.I'm thinking that by driving "112 mph" you're inviting a ticket, impounding, go to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200 BUT, PAY court fees, fines, impoundment fees, increased insurance rates, yadda, yadda. Yeah, I left my speeding ticket days back with my youth.
So ... no. I watch my speed RELIGIOUSLY in local neighborhoods and surface streets, and on highways, keep it within 10mph. So far, a winning formula.
Knock on wood. 1 year, no whammies.
I accidentally hit 100 the other day, but I thought I was in the mid 80s. I stick 100% to the limit in neighborhoods because I don't want to kill any kids, but on the highway I often do 15-20 over. Going more than 20 over is asking for big trouble in most states.
I've done over 120 on the track, but on the street that is asking to be arrested and probably losing your license. Not worth it.Thank you! I'm with you on most counts; still haven't gotten to triple digits yet. At least that I know of ... and I agree, 100% compliance in neighborhoods. I'm THAT GUY that stands in the middle of my street when I see cars speeding - make them slow down or hit me. I'm also the guy that writes down plates of people who come flying down my block - it ends in a damn cul-de-sac! Why people have to come down here at 50+mph, I don't understand. Had a couple of kids try to race down here a month ago.... not having any of that, not in my 'hood!
No tickets so far, just stay alert. Teslas are not easy to notice even when you are driving 90mph on the road. Several times I slowed down after I see the cops, they never chase me. I guess they don't have enough time to measure my speed. But you need to be aware of speed traps.
