Heya!

 

I personally stick to around the speed limit, a bit under or just slightly above -- But most of the time right at the Speed Limit -- However, exceptions can be made when I'm driving with friends or etc.

Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.

Speed is not that bad, it depends on how good or bad players can handle it.

I definitely agree here. Very good point.

TMP is not all about speeding to get to your destination the fastest, it's about being realistic with other online players. 

I like this point. I am not sure if people would agree to the point I am about to make but, I would also like to add that I feel driving in TMP could somewhat promote safe driving in real life. This is just a simulation and by players getting into an accident in the game, the increased liklihood of that player not committing that same mistake and even to not commit the mistake when driving in real life. Whether that be on a car, bus or truck, I feel TruckersMP can somewhat promote safe and responsible driving. It's a little difficult for me to explain this properly, but yeah...

Of course!. I think it is much safer to drive with the speed limit, it is also much more realistic ❤️.

To drive in a more realistic manner in ETS2 and ATS somewhat makes the game quite fun too. However, sometimes in a long journey, people may just want to get to the destination since the drive is very long. But of course, it's safter driving abiding the speed limits.

Hey,

I Follow Speed Limits Because Following Speed Limits Can Prevent Many Accidents. This way it helps us stay safer.

Most definitely, fewer problems and much more enjoyable, there is some great scenery to look at, which you won't see if your doing warp 9.9.

Haha! Of course, there is some great scenery around the map, especially in DLC areas. It's hard to enjoy the scenery at speed. Little off-topic here but what areas around the map do you tend to drive at reduced speeds, whether that would be for scenery or because it is busy. Everyone is welcome to answer.

If the CD road is busy and I'm pulling my triple trailer then I do the Speed limit +10% so 66 in a 60 and 88 in an 80 zone. If its quiet and there's not many around then I do go full pelt but reduce my speed if it starts to be busy. I also don't overtake now and refrain from doing so.

Not really. But my max speed is 97km/h due to trucksbook. But mostly I drive with the speedlimiter on, because that is easier when accelerating.
I'm not slowing down for every little village, that has nobody driving through it.
I keep a good look at the mini map, if there are players around. And I mostly drive in promods.

Yes, there's no reason not to.

 

Only exception for me is checkpoints in the PM Middle East expansion. There isn't really a penalty or a requirement to stop for them, and dropping down to 10-25km/h in the midst of any drive is pretty dangerous for others.

 

Apart from that, you can catch me doing 80 or 90 in a 70 on some tight, secluded road and that's it.

It depends.
When I'm driving alone I do sometimes the max speed of 110km/h, but only when it is possible and not disturbing other players.
In convoys I stick to the max speed what the leader is driving, only speeding when there are gaps to be filled.
When I drive with others then we mostly do max 90 km/h

Not necessarily, for example going 50 or 60km/h fixed on whole c-d could be boring, if it was 80km/h as the main limit then it would be a different story.
But I think that for a nicer environment people might make exceptions sometimes, as long as they feel like their speed is safe, but not drive crazy either haha
