Going to work in the AM I usually set it about 60 mph until a light catches me. Sometimes I can get all the way to my cut off before this happens.

I always drive speed limit +5 MPH. Fast enough to make a little time, but not enough to get pulled over.

Normally the Highway Patrol will tolerate up to 10 mph over the speed limit posted, because should they pull you over within the 10 mph the ticket is not worth the price of admission. But go over the limit, and they are licking their chops as the minimum price you pay will be $180.00, and will increase every 10 mph over the posted limit.
Most highways in Canada are rated 100 km per hour.
So as we are in kph and 100 km being 60 mph, i'll set it at 110 kph (65)
