Shutter Speeds - What Do You Use?

As seen in IPVM's Average Frame Rate Used post, the average frame rate used by integrators is anywhere from 6 - 10 FPS.

One question that was not answered, however, is the shutter speed used to accomodate frame rates. It should be known that default frame rates tend to vary across manufacturers, and this is a large problem in low light, as some cameras default to a slow shutter (1/5 or 1/15) at night.

That being said, what is the average shutter speed you use for your cameras, and why do you use it? For LPC and LPR applications, what shutter is used there? Have you used a slow shutter before with or without knowing, and if so, what were the ramifications, if any?
