Default You know you drive too fast when..

You consider 60 in a 40 as going slow.
When motercycles look at you and don't want to play.

Yeah, that 60/40 thing sucks. It's addicting, but I either need to get a police scanner or just don't speed at all. I've gotten two tickets this year so far both at 6 in the morning. What luck I have lol. $310.00 bucks worth I think the police scanner is worth it.

Your mad your standing mile is only 150mph.

MPH signs have a x2 at the end of them for you, and you alone. Passengers don't appreciate this "Problem".

You know you're going too fast when....

People think you have a loud exhaust, but that's actually your car breaking the sound barrier.

You tell the cops, "You mean this ISN'T the Bonneville Salt Flats? I must have taken a wrong turn!"

You can rev your engine and watch your gas gauge drop.

Your passengers must be aware of the emergency escape procedures (I've actually done this) given during the safety briefing.
