Driver evaluations & speeding 2-5 mph over ?

Recommended Posts

I am a new driver and was wondering how strict companies are when it comes to evaluating you for a raise etc... when it comes to exceeding the speed limit by 2-5mph ? I have been OTR for about 4.5 months but was concerned about a instances where I just let the truck go a little over the speed limit on downgrades etc...  Also, if your tractor is governored at 65mph (speed limit is 75 mph) and you exceed the governed 65mph by 2 - 5 mph does the company consider that speeding as well ? Will most company managers that do the driver evaluations overlook this as a minor issue due to the 2-5mph range being normal or acceptable ? 

I'm finding it nearly impossible to be at or under the posted speed limit every second of the day no matter how hard I try !
Thanks in advance,
