I live in SoCal and drive the 5 frwy often, sorry but 90+ MPH is simply irresponsible at any time of day or night. CVC 22350 “unsafe speed for prevailing conditions” only applies up to the posted speed limit. But then I think you know this. Lots of engineering goes into road speed limits vs optimal driving conditions. No CA public road is rated for safe operation by individual citizens above 80MPH. Which happens to be the threshold limit that the CHP uses to start writing the majority of frwy tickets.

I suspect you have a “get out of ticket free card” in your wallet aka LEO, Fire or other city /state issued one and if so, shame on you for misusing that privilege when not on duty and endangering others on the roadways.
An additional factor in Southern California is traffic. The speed limit on most freeways around Los Angeles is 65 because there are so many vehicles on the road, entering and exiting the freeway, distracted drivers staring at their phones, etc. Even then, at 80 MPH you are barely keeping up with the flow of traffic!

See the second sentence in my reply and pay particular attention to the parenthetical reference.

You're incorrect about my employment status. I just happen to believe in the mantra of "no victim, no crime" (with limited caveats) while you might have authoritarian issues you haven't worked through; not my place to judge.

I don't go pass 75 and it is fine, yeah a few people pass me. I don't drive on the fast lane and a lot of people don't pass me either. So There is really no excuse/reason to speed.

Maybe, but at least I don’t drive 90+ mph on heavily traveled frwys at speeds that put people at higher risk and then brag proudly about it online. Stuff like that has and often does come back to bite folks like you in the A**.

Funny how there are always NO VICTIMS......until there is! Good luck with that defense even in the liberal CA. courts.

"Folks like me", huh? Where did I admit to doing anything of the sort on "heavily traveled" freeways?

And stop thinking about my ass. :CWL:

The 5 frwy is noted by the NTSB as one of the most “heavily traveled” frwys in the U.S. Also according to CalTrans, DMV and CHP it is the most “heavily traveled“ freeway in CA.

Stop being an A** and not giving a S*** about others on the road and I will leave you A** alone. But as for the boys in county after you get arrested for felony speed... well good luck.

Sorry...didn't catch your edit above.

I don't live in CA...which should be pretty obvious from the AZ next to "location" in the sidebar.

But whatever.....

Since this is going all tangential based on ONE meager sentence someone else wrote about their Prius and speeding....we can continue down the path of the libertarian philosophy RE: NV,NC, but I suspect you're not really interested in the discourse; just virtue signaling on your pet peeve of speeders, lol.

LMK. ;)
When you have had close family and friends killed by needless speeding drivers you would have a peeve about them too.

90 mph + in a 70-75 zone on crappy often congested CA freeways? I think the majority of readers and local FRWY users would say that is being an irresponsible driver that cares little for the safety of others using the 5 FRWY and who more closely follow the posted limits. 75-80 in light traffic (whenever that is) sure, but 90+?

When you eventually get stopped by the CHP I hope you are polite to the officer and accept your expensive ticket graciously. That is unless you have a get “out of ticket free card“.....
eh, used to run my lowered ram pick up 120+ from la to frisco.. and with the times the way theyre jsut start coughing and write on the window. Covid danager. LOL

besides California is one of few states that doesnt run 80mph speed limits on there highways say like the five between la and san fran. so on average most states drivers including semi trucks are running 85+ on the daily so 90 in a small car isnt that bad. But Self intilted drivers that dont know the rules of the road in Crapifonia are the problems with the unsafe driving conditions not the speeders.

to get back on track. i think its great that Jeep is installing the solar power charge stations. you can blend them in pretty easily and if you install in a general area that's not an eye sore then even better.

Yeah and one of those idiots looking at their phones might come up to your lane, hit you, and then you can lose control. At 90mph if you hit the defense, say bye bye. If you hit another car full of children then the consequences can be even worst. All because of a dumbass looking at his/her phone while driving, oh, and because you were driving over the speed limit, which will of course be noted by the officer at the scene.

I rather get into an accident at 65~70 mph than at 90. It greatly reduces the chances of a fatal crash. Humans make mistakes, we all do. It can happen anytime be it by your own hand or another person. There is absolutely no need to drive that fast.

Solar stations? I thought we were talking about how fast you can drive on freeways in CA ;)
