I read this in a YouTube comment under a video where a man got pulled over by the cops for exceeding the speed limit—
Stay under 10 mph over and you are most likely not going to get pulled over. I stay at 9 over on the highways and if you see a cop just let off the gas and you're for sure good.
Can this structure be used in other contexts as well? For eg,
I'm just 2 over my goal (weight)
I think if it's not 2 over then you're fine (2 days or hours over the deadline)
If these are not correct then could you provide other examples?
