Not that this is a big help but I do find there is a sweet spot in stop and go where I can stay in 2nd and creep forward pretty constantly and do way less gear changes.

It all goes to shit if someone cuts in front of you though. 🤪
Clearly you don't live in Florida. You can't leave a car length between you and the next car without some jerkoff cutting in front of you and then slamming on the braking :cwl:

I'll drive it all day if I don't have to go near 35E.
Without question, the portion south of I-30 to the 67 split sucks big time.

Check into the possibility of modified hours.
This is what I was gonna suggest. I live in Davie and work in Boca-- 30 miles each way. I petitioned to have them let me do 10-6, which helps. Mostly in the morning though-- evenings can still be busy but I'm able to take the turnpike instead if I need to.

It really is, I'm just trying to get home so I can rest. I drive between 100 to 150 miles a day on the company's truck so the last thing I want is some morron trying to race me.

I know when I drove to the keys several years ago in the HEP, I had that issue.

I tried living there starting in January 1993. I lasted until October, and actually went back to Wyoming to get away from it. Got 2 speeding tickets in Duval county while I was there. Jacksonville is a hole, in a hole. I wouldn't go back if someone paid my bills.

Now this is a thread I can get behind! I get home from work and instantly pour myself a bourbon. I live in Coral Springs and work in Opa Locka Fri-Mon 7-5. Thank the sweet baby Jesus for the Sawgrass.. I commute in my 6 speed Mini Cooper on the weekdays and I’ll take the 350 to work on sat and sun. My favorite part of the week is driving south on sawgrass/75 at 6 in the morning. There’s no one out, and I can just relax and enjoy the ride. I avoid the 95 like the plague. I call it the gauntlet.. best of luck to you, and I can appreciate someone who is looking for a place to work based on their vehicle. Save the manuals!
