    Essentially the new law adds to your fine if your caught going over 85mph on a 4 lane or wider highway or 75mph on a 2 lane roadway.
    I'm sure theres other stipulations in the law but these are the issues that seem to have everyone upset over the new law.

    Personally I dont have an issue with this law because I feel if you violate the law be ready to pay, there is a posted speed limit and it's your responsibility to not only know it but to obey it.
    Yes I do occaisionally speed but as I get older I'm finding the speed violations I commit are lower than they were say 10 years ago, if I'm running 65-70 in a 60mph zone its a very rare day, I usually set the cruise at 64/65 and leave it at that.
    Once in a great while I'll run my bike as fast as 80+, but again I know the speed limit and if I get caught it's my fault.
    I've become a firm believer of leave the high speeds on the track where you and the other drivers are prepared for them.
    I also stay around the speed limit because of points on my CDL and keep my driving record clear . Nothing is worth it to me putting my life and others at risk but I see it everyday,everywhere people driving stupid. It's never going to get any better , just dodge em and avoid tragedy the best I can

    Funny you should mention this, I recently had a discussion with a friend in Law Enforcement about this very issue, most states have a minimum speed limit too but officers rarely ticket drivers for violating this law because most of them dont feel its a problem, the safety issue is only with those driving to fast.
    Another issue that for some reason really bothers me is drivers putting on their warning flashers and driving down the highway, if you have an issue important enough to turn the warning flashers on shouldnt you get off the road and take care of the issue instead of driving along like everythings just great?
    Most times these drivers are in the center lanes running about 10 miles an hour under the speed limit being their own little hazard area.

    Only time I ever see this is when it's a Volunteer Fireman/woman heading to the station, and they are usually going faster than the posted speed.

    IMO, if you are doing 30 over, you deserve to pay more money. There is no reason to be going that fast over the posted speed limit....unless of course it's a dire emergency which even then, an amberlamps is probably the proper choice rather than racing to the hospital or whatever yourself.

    I think if you have a vehicle that is meant to be driven hard and fast, then do it, if not don't have the car. I understand most people can't handle cars or motorcycles like that, but for those who have riden and raced there whole lives 100 is like 25. And I'm not gunna slow down on the highway until gsp and asp decide to follow the laws as well I got pasted by a cop doing at least 100 with no lights on. Pretty sure the law applies to everyone. And until they Follow it neither will I. I no I'm a jerk. Only when it comes to this matter tho

    These laws were put into place to curb the Street Raciing that is growing fast. My position on this is if you want to race, take it to the track or drag strip. There is no place for it on public highways and it jeopardizes the innocent citizen trying to drive responsibly!!!

    I'm at the track as often as possible but I live in bama and my race car is in ga, but I've had to many friend pushed into walls and out of there lanes by people in cars who don't pay attention, I've had a friend die because a person didn't look in there side view mirror to get over on I 85 and knocked him off his bike and under another car. We were only doing 65 when this happen I was lucky enough to be 5 feet behind him. So I guess Ill just say I don't speed if cars are around me. I wouldn't want to do what I've seen people do
