Every single person involved in making that video deserves a slow painful death at the hands of a deranged psychopath wielding a rusty potato peeler.

Ineffectual film student morons.

Geeze people lighten up, I found it funny

Yes they were "impeding" traffic but that was their whole point, they went by the speed limit on the books and demonstrated that the law is outdated and needs to be readjusted.

they have somewhat of a vallid point, but at those speeds id have no problem of crawling right onto their asses and giving them a little "bump" A little vehicular assult is a good wake up call , damn hippies:miff:

They set out to prove a point and they did just that... and by law that was in no way impeding traffic. There's not one thing a cop could do if he saw that since those four cars were the only ones obeying the speed limit and following the laws handed down to them

While there may not be anything a police officer could do about that exact infraction, or lack thereof, a police officer could issue a citation for something. I say this because I think if a cop wants to give you a ticket they will find a way.

But what could he give them a ticket for? Just because they were the only ones that day that didn't break the law?

Would love to see that one hold up in court

There is probably some law about staying right except to pass. I'm sure if a cop inpsected the cars close enough one of the vehicles could probably be cited for bald tires, bad wiper blades, something haging from the mirror, or some other BS thing.

I'm not saying they should be cited for anything. In fact I think they bring up a good point. My point is that a creative cop could find something to cite them for. Whether or not it would hold up in court is another debate. My point was a cop could find something for which he could cite one of those drivers.

no maqtter what my persol feeling is on it, the problem is the only thing they prooved is that nearly EVERYONE speeds, it doesn't proove that 75 is a safe speed to change the law to or anything like that.

so stupidity deserves a cookie?!
I lived in the ATL for 3 years and 85 is the speed limit that most people go. Chicago has a 55mph limit but cops won't pull you over until you are over 70mph. The law is what the police make it.

Exactly. They say they were following the law, but they were definitely breaking that one. Toolbags.

Great video..... If you ever have driven through Alanta you'll understand. Driving there makes our 696 look like a school zone!
