I don't know the answer you'd get from an insurance agent, a police officer, a lawyer, or a judge. My experience has been: -- If you exceed the posted limit and keep up with traffic, you can be picked out of the crowd and ticketed for speeding, and there's nothing you can do about it. -- If you drive at the posted limit while everybody else passes you like you're in reverse, you can be picked out of the crowd and ticketed for obstructing traffic, and there's nothing you can do about it.

In Indiana reckless driving is considered if the operator of the vehicle is going 15+ miles per hour over the posted speed limit.

In general the answer is, technically, no, you may not. However if you are passing a slower moving vehicle it would be considered 'lawful' to exceed the limit to pass the slower moving vehicle and then immediately return to the posted limit once it was passed.

Whatever the posted speed limit is.

If the runway is in the city, the speed limit is 20 miles per hour unless otherwise posted.
