Speedometer off

Speedometer on my 99 always reads 4mph above actual speed. Every time I pass a speed trap, whether I'm doing 35 or 65, it's always off by 4. Ideas?
Thanks!

They are all off a few miles per hour high on purpose.

I guess that makes sense. It also explains the tailgaters when I thought I was doing 5 over.
