The Plain Dealer recently looked into how fast is too fast when driving on state roads, highways and the Ohio Turnpike.

The Plain Dealer analyzed 2.7 million tickets written by the Ohio State Highway Patrol from 2010 through 2014. The tickets did not include stops made by local police who enforce traffic laws on many portions of interstates. Troopers patrol all of Ohio’s roads but tend to focus on state routes, interstates and the turnpike.

The analysis found that troopers target drivers who speed excessively, and that the patrol’s focus becomes much more intense when drivers hit 10 mph over the limit. In fact, The Plain Dealer found that the rate of increase in tickets between 9 mph and 10 mph is the most dramatic jump in the data.
