I don’t want to go faster than 65-70 I will just hog the right lane. I get best efficiency at the current limits. This chart does make sense, follows what I’ve seen entirely.Raise the speedlimit.
You mean, other drivers are creating a potential hazard by aparoching a vehicle ahead of them at a speed that is inappropriate, as dictated by the sign on the side of the road.If traffic is going 40 + Mph faster than you, you are a road hazzard.
I agree to certain point.If traffic is going 40 + Mph faster than you, you are a road hazzard.
Happened to me today... I'm in the left lane and guy in a white very small toyota came over to left. The other lanes were free!!!!!The problem is they rarely stay in the right lane. They park in the left lane and block traffic.
We just don’t feel the need to rush everywhere. I enjoy my drive comfortably and economically, I leave few mins early and always arrive on time.Happened to me today... I'm in the left lane and guy in a white very small toyota came over to left. The other lanes were free!!!!!
I went around him... on his left - not something I wanted to do.
I swear most people who drive slow are also mentally slow. I feel sorry for them.
That’s probably true. However, there’s a LOT of people who drive at speeds that don’t even vaguely reflect their ability.I swear most people who drive slow are also mentally slow. I feel sorry for them.
That's kind of the point I was trying to make earlier - we drive in "mixed company" - drivers of varying ability. I am sure that many, if not most, drivers do not understand the PHYSICS of driving and how their particular car will react in different situations. Simply applying the brakes is a vastly different experience at 90 vs 50 mph. Speed limits need to take all of this into account, too.That’s probably true. However, there’s a LOT of people who drive at speeds that don’t even vaguely reflect their ability.
I sat in a room of nearly 50 people a while back, listening to a crash scene investigator tell his stories. The idea being that he shows us the basic process of how easily people can die in a crash, the court process, the lives of those involved after the crash etc.
By secret ballot, he asked people to rate their driving from 1-5.
1 being well below average, 3 average, 5 well above average.
80% of the people rated themselves as above average, 10% well above average, 10% average.
Clearly that doesn’t work.
Worse than that, I’ve been in a vehicle with most of those people and I’m here to tell you that at least half of them are FAR from what I would describe as “good”. Several I would rate as “barely competent” yet strangely they failed to report that in the ballot….
