I love it when everyone is crusing along at 80 then you get the random slow down to 50. So you think there's an accident or something, but no, nothing.

Ok, I should have clarified. I'm not talking about going 10 under the speed limit on a congested road. I'm talking about people going 10 under the speed limit on a pretty much open road.

I'll drive on certain roads to work in the morning and on the way home that will be home and clear to traffic. If you do the speed limit and don't take forever and a day to accelerate there, you can usually time it to make all the lights.

Instead people get stuck behind the asshole that wants to save 1 mpg but piss everyone else off by constantly getting them stuck at every stoplight.

Traffic around the loop is great now that I don't have to stop at the toll booths and can just hit the express lanes!

I typically only drive about 60-65 on the e-way ALWAYS in the right lane as well myself. I am not in that big of a hurry. I leave myself plenty of time to get where I am going. I also drive tractor-trailer and the speed limit for them is only 60, so after a while you get used to driving at about that speed and it does not bother you. BTM.

nope, my truck only floats all over the road, sucks only running 15lbs of air to get good contact.

Either way though, i'm never in a hurry to get to work or lighten my wallet, so i drive 60 all the way to downtown GR on 131 and 96 everyday.....

But having a good radio and speakers make up for the drive, so I just jam out to KLQ on the trip.

Charlie says I'm a very good driver.







BTW, Rush Hour 3 wasn't very funny.
