I used to keep it right about 23 over. A ticket for 10 over or 23 over is the same when you're just going to take defensive driving anyway.

At most, cruising speed on the interstate would be kept under 100 mph (when travelling between two cities, like Houston to SATX) but I've since found you'll go to jail for that.

The price isn't the same, but you can still take DD or deferred.

I'll ride up to 23 over. Whatever keeps me moving just a little faster than the normal flow.

10-15 over or +5-10 faster than traffic, it feels much safer.
