We've compiled each U.S. state's maximum highway speed, reckless driving threshold, and mandatory and maximum penalties for reckless driving, as well as any excessive speed laws and their respective penalties.
50 kms/hr over posted limit (stunt driving), roadside license suspension for 21 days, vehicle impoundment and up to $10 grand in fines...normally much less. We call it a "money grab" here....c10 you would literally be in jail up here. IF they could catch you
anyone caught 50 KPH (or 32 mph) over the posted limit to a max of 150 KPH or 94 MPH is walking for a while, vehicle impounded, and huge fines. I seem to recall it it can be as high as 10,000 dollars. But do not quote me. There are a number of rising penalties until you get there involving cash and demerit points.
7. points you get a letter to behave
9 points ups get an interview
11 points you have to explain why you need your lic
13 points you to rewrite the test and redo the driving exam with no mistakes or faults allowed
15 points you are walking again
Fortunately for me today Myself and a number of cagers did not get caught. 'Cause it would have been VERY expensive. Hypothetically speaking fo course
We have to pick and choose our riding areas carefully...thankfully much like the US, we are a vast country and not overly swarming with coppers...I could not own a bike like this in Canada.
I feel real bad you guys can't get the best use of the bird. Now I know why some Zrx Canadians always come down to America for a while at the rallies.
Yep, our speed limits are far too low and everyone knows it. The government thinks raising the limit to 110 is a big deal...people will be going 130 now on those roads.I could care less about going fast. I do like the fact I have a beast underneath me that if I wanted to go fast, I could.
I just find a 60 mph speed limit is ridiculous The motoring public have already voted for higher limits with their gas pedals. 75 mph on most major highways is very normal. and as you point out considering the vast distances we travel a speed limit of 75 or even 80 is not unreasonable in the empty areas of the country. Hypothetically to travel from White river to my house could be done in in about 7 hours with an 80 mph speed limits on most of the 401/400/11 /17 highways. adding time for gas stops and food it is. very doable trip. Not that I would know that from personal experience you understand. However with the current 62 and 55 mph speed limits on the same trip driving time alone would be well in excess of 12 hours plus gas and food Turning a simple trip onto a to day event.
