Posted Speed Limits

Q. Hello, my name is David D. and I travel about four days per week, averaging 900-1200 miles each week. My question today pertains to the speed limit on the interstates that I travel. Because I cross state lines, I may find myself on a 65 MPH interstate or a 70 MPH interstate. I have always heard that state highway patrol officers will give you 5 miles per hour over what the speed limit is, my question is…is that true or is there some unwritten rule that allows us to drive 5 miles per hour over the posted speed limit?

Tire Manufacturing Date

Q. I have been told that all tires have a manufacturing date stamped on the sidewall. After checking the tires on my pickup and on my wife’s car, I can’t seem to find the manufacturing date. Could you give me some direction as to where I should look, or even if the date of manufacturing really exists on a tire?

Frustrated!
