The New "Speeding"

Not that long ago, someone who was nailed for speeding 15-25 miles over the limit was regarded as a lunatic. 

Now 20-30 over is not very fast.  The new benchmark is 20-49 over

We're talking 80-90+ MPH on Milwaukee County interstates--where there IS other traffic.  Not like out in cow-town Jefferson County.  Yes, 80 or so is the accepted norm on I-90/94 in Michigan--but everybody runs at that speed there, and have done so for at least 20 years--and NOT in metro Detroit.

In Milwaukee County the norm is still 5-10 over.  Trying to run at 80 in 60 MPH traffic is a big problem.
