I used to have a 35 mile commute and when went I went 80mph instead of 65mph (the speed limit) it felt like the trip was a lot faster. It usually took around 35-45 minutes, and of course I didn’t want to get a ticket, but I didn’t want to spend any more time on the freeway than I had to.
I no longer have that commute, but a I wrote a commute time calculator to see exactly how much time one would save by speeding. I learned that on a 35 mile commute, an average speed of 65mph and 80mph makes a difference of about six minutes. Some would say it’s worth it, but getting a ticket will take 5-10 minutes, and then you have to pay the fine, and possibly higher car insurance premiums.
I decided that for me, 6 minutes wasn’t worth it.
My commute is now only 10 miles and that makes even less of a difference. If I could even manage to average 100mph it would take 6 minutes to get to work. Travelling at the speed limit of 65mph it would take 9 minutes.
Again, 3 minutes is not worth it. Especially since I would have to drive like a maniac to maintain an average speed of 100mph.
