Am I the only driver who slows down near Speed Traps?

Recommended Posts

Supercharged

aaaa lot of people like to brake when they see the speed camera.. best thing is they're not even close to 90 yet.

 

anyway i thought by the time you can fully see the camera means it's too late liao? braking when you're right in front of it got use meh

Worse thing is it is a chain reaction, the first one jammed bo bian second one must jammed then third, fourth, fifth. If one kuku driving with botak tyres... there come chain accidents. [furious]

AYE & PIE, personally tested accidentally. 110km/h first lane. Heng heng boh tai ji...

But my advice is don't try lah. If you slow down to 100km/h, is safe one, can appeal say you overtaking left vehicle driving at 90km/h.

If 110... nothing to say. Slow down to 70/80, is simply asking to be death-stared.

IF 100 can say car speedometer spoil one? Lol

There's a speed trap near BKE CCK exit (Exit 3), and one speed trap along PIE before Lornie.

 

Am I the only one who take effort to slow down to < 90 KPH? I see other vehicles zoom past me macam they don't give a damn. [:|]

 

 

Sure if I know there got speed-trap I sure slow to the speedlimit lah. Who want to pay the fine.

 

I just got a $150 n 6 points summon n going to pay after my appeal failed.

please check ur rear mirror if you are on lane 1... tolong tolong...

Yes! Agree with your statement!

 

Zham brake upon seeing speed trap on lane 1 is a very dangerous thing to do..... I would rather one fellow Kena speeding ticket rather than to implicate others to involve in a chain collision!

 

One person die is enough, don't harm the innocence!

Can drive at 90 right or at least 85, why drop until 80? Got one drop until 70 until car behind him all brake which may cause chain collision.

I hope you are not one of those that suddenly brake upon seeing speed trap/camera. :huh:

 

No lah. Of course I'm not. About 300 meters before the trap, you can see the big blue sign that says "Speed Camera Ahead", you will ease off the pedal already mah

if the speed limit is 90, you can safely drive by at 100. it is well known that the car's speedo is built to over read the actual speed. in our local context, you will not trigger the speed cam if your speedo is within +10 to 15 over the speed limit. '

 

if you still feel the need to slow down, please do other road users a favor by:

 

1. Not using the foot brake to slow down.

 

2. Staying out of lane 1 if you decide in advance to slow down before the speed cam

 

 

I was just about to create this thread. Not only once but everyday i saw people slow down to 70-80 when they see speed trap in aye. Come on man damn road hogging

 

i notice drivers also like to use the foot brake when -

 

passing the ERP gantries

there's random non-TP police cars/vans nearby (even though already within speed limit)

driving through the slightest bend on the expressway

driving up/down slope on the expressway

 

i dislike these types of braking from others but have learnt to anticipate and adapt when it happen. my preferred mode of slowing down is engine brake unless foot brake is absolutely necessary. that's why i always get car sick whenever i'm in a taxi due to their style of slowing down.

Just b careful n remember when u upsize yr wheels/rims n if the OD is increased then yr speedo wil show slower than actual speed.

 

I upsize by 2" but OD only slightly bigger (cos of lower profile) n I check speedo now only just slightly under.

 

If I go 100 speedo show abt 95+. So still have a slight allowance. [sly]

Cars that have been tuned may also have speedometers that do not reflect actual travelling speed. Best to use a GPS to benchmark.

 

Or do it manually just for fun - match speed with those in the KPE/ MCE tunnels to check your 80km/h reading. [drivingcar]
