How fast do you take turns?

I usaully add 20 miles to the yellow speed limit sign that appears before sharp turns. Used go 10 miles over the speed limit but that felt kind of slow. (By saying speed limit, I didn't mean THE speed limit. Just the recommended speed limit on that specific turn.)


I drive 2001 Honda Civic EX sedan.
(Mazda 3 became my mom's car. :x )

My car is Civic.
My mom's car is Mazda 3.

My mom can smoke me all day... T_T

^^^Why did you give up the Mazda3? I had a 2001 Honda Civic Ex Coupe.


Anyways to answer the question it really depends on how sharp the corners are. Between 10-15mph is what I do.

I didn't give up the car. (How can I give up an awesome car like Mazda 3 over a goddam civic! )

My dad did not want to give me a pretty new car, because I still am a student. (at local community college.)

So I ended up with my mom's civic.

My car is Civic.
My mom's car is Mazda 3.

Usually around 10-15 mph over.

There is a turn near my house that has a 15 mph limit (a sharp "U" shaped turn), and the first time I went into it at 30-35...luckily I was driving the Mazda3 or I would have been tumbling down a hill, and maybe dead :shock: That was the only time the tires squealed, and the back end swung around nicely

Yeah again depends on the turn. there's a freeway interchange here, (freeway speed limit is 65mph).. the turn (to the right) has a posted limit of 45mph.. i got around 60-70mph on it.

Depends....I've taken one turn at 60mph that was advised at 25mph.

I try to double the signs In reality I take them as fast as I can before the tires start to squeel. The only 2 around here I regularly use, one getting onto and off of 95. One is a circle with a 25 sign, I normally take it at 40-45. Getting back on is a long fast slight turn. It's posted at 35mph, but I've gone up to 80 and not even flinched. Never tried it faster because i only cruise at 80.
