Now I don't want to start a huge argument. I value these forums for allowing people to discuss issues and form and mould their own opinions. So can we have a discussion? Speeding Legal types, and speed apologists argue that speeding is a legal term and so can only apply when a vehicle is travelling above the legally posted speed limit. Is there an accepted alternative definition? That is, can someone be said to be speeding who is not exceeding the speed limit? With the emphasis moving so much towards the legal definition of speeding these days, would you now consider it wrong to use the term subjectively, to describe a vehicle that you thought to be driving too fast? What is too fast?
