Re: Driving too slow in a 50 km/h zone

As for speedo underread, it's pretty much guaranteed than any car on its standard wheel and tyre size will overread by 7-8%, so perfectly acceptable to drive at an indicated 55. Yes, there may be others who feel that 60+ is an appropriate speed, but I'm not talking about them (nor condoning it).
My cruise set at 55km/h just netted me a 40CHF fine, clocked at 54-3 tolerance giving me a speed demon worthy 51 km/h. I will now be setting cruise to 54... I know the cruise isn't always spot on and can exceed itself by a indicated km/h, but It's a cheap lesson to be a little more conservative.
