Did you take the time to ask the government in that area why they have speed zones that are offending you?

We are generally not talking residential roads here but rather rural limited access highways and interstates.

A majority of speed related deaths in this country are on non interstate roads.

On any 70mph road across the country I usually stick with 75-77, anything over 80 and you'll get pulled over. Only time I go 80+ is when I'm with a group of 4 or more cars. But if they are going 85 or more I peel off and drop back to 75-77.

Yep, that works. You can also keep in mind that you probably won't get caught if you do not set the pace at speeds much higher than the speed limit.

Our friend that patrols has a saying - "8: You're Great. 9: You're Mine" That's what he uses as his basis for pulling people over. (Referring to how many miles about the speed limit.)

This coming from an ex-trooper.
I heard this from an LA State Trooper when I was pulled over on I-20 near Ruston:

"We only pull people over if they're going 10 over or higher. You were going 81 [in a 70], so you're getting a ticket."

There are always sheriff's deputies out between Ruston and Shreveport though, they may go by different rules.

If you cared about the lives of others you would not be posting such inflammatory remarks about speeding for fun in public.

Nobody cares about your moral policing.
