Nah, I usually go 10 over no matter what's posted. Why would you risk a ticket going 25 over an "unfair" limit? What a crock!

An 85th percentile speed limit means 15% of the vehicles are exceeding the posted speed limit. So 85% of vehicles are driving at or slower than the posted speed limit. When speed limits are not ridiculously underposted, people obey them.
Thanks for explaining. Maybe you can get other western states changed too?

Yip, that certainly sounds what people I know and I do too (no more than 10 over the speed limit). Driving 25 mph over the posted limit in many places could end with anything from a hefty ticket to an injury or death.
