I hear ya, but the last time I drove down I95 to FL the slow lane was 10+ mph over those limits. It appears that when there is no traffic on some Interstates the cars make up for the fact that they were caught in traffic there all week long. Kind of like a revision to the mean, or make up for lost time if you will.

Interesting. On this trip, I was on my way to Miami. On 95 through Jacksonville, the limit is 70 as I recall. I pretty much stayed between 75 and 80. Past Jacksonville, 99% of Floridians stay on the left lane - are these people just plain wacko? I did push it a little past 80 on the far right lane for whatever reason.

In any case, I paid my fine today, $149.76. I'm not sure if I get points since I live in MD and the crime occurred in VA, and VA and MD may have a colluding agreement I'm not aware of. Anyone know?

The out of state violations will be reported to your home state but speeding ticket points are usually not transferred or assessed for out of state violations since each state has different criteria for points. If the violation is for a major offense like DWI (and a limited number of more serious other offences) your home state may assess its own points.

As a result, the penalties for speeding in VA hit a VA resident harder than they hit a MD resident caught in VA as the latter generally only gets the fine.
See the link below for the MD specifics:

Thanks poolman. It looks like I will be OK on points from MD perspective. I have another road trip this weekend to NYC and rest of upper east coast and I have 400+ HP on my right foot. It will be leisurely at no more than 10 over.
