speed violation

I am so confused whenever I fly I see people going almost 100 knots faster than me so I try and get up to the speed they are going and I get a violation warning so how are they going faster than me? I am so confused!

Are you over 10,000ft?

yes and the violation warning says stay under mach 0.90

You were probably looking at your airspeed and there ground speed.There is a difference

but how would the groundspeed be higher if there was a headwind

Depends on altitude also, winds vary at different altitudes.
