Lead Foot Might Not Be Worth Lighter Wallet

UNDATED (WCBI)-  So is the urge to push the speedometer past the speed limit really worth it in terms of time? A quick look seems to show the time saved may not be worth the cost of the ticket.

Using the urge to run 80 in a 70 as a benchmark pushing the limit by 10 miles per hour will only cut a 200 mile trip by 20 minutes making the journey a two and a half hour trip.

On a 300 mile Thanksgiving drive that extra 10 miles per hour buys you an extra thirty minutes if you decide to run the risk of getting a ticket instead of sticking at the posted 70 mile per hour speed limit.

To gauge how much time you would save by pushing the limit follow the link below.
