Drivers are allowed to go no more than 10 miles over the speed limit. On city streets just don't go more then 34 MPH and you won't get a ticket for speeding. WAZE is a good app also. It informs you of many things. Worth having and using.

Recently a woman was killed in my neighborhood while crossing the street with a walk signal. Drivers need to be discouraged from reckless driving in general.
If she was crossing with the walk signal then it wasn't due to speeding; it sounds more like an illegal turn or running a red light. You can't turn a 90 degree city corner at 25 MPH. You need to slow yourself to make a turn.

This website has a map with locations of red light and speed cameras. It is not official so keep that in mind but I checked a few locations that I know have cameras and they were on the map. Green dots are speed cameras.

Ironically sites like these causes the cameras to perform their advertised function. Cars will actually go the speed limit in those areas.

Humans can sprint at 16mph.
Humans can bike at almost 20 mph on average.
Driving a car at 25 mph might as well be standing still............
