I'm usually running 70+ by the time I hit the top of the ramp. Our mergelanes actually run the full mile between exits and serve as entrance/exit lanes, so you better be at full speed when you get there.

They'd totally misunderstand and end up in the news again.

We had crappy roads this weekend.

It is currently a mix of snow and sleet up where I live, but nothing here.

I want a blizzard. I want an ice storm freaking blizzard from hell with high winds and huge drifts.

This school closes MUCH more readily than where I used to work. It might have been last year my old school finally closed (hardly ever does) and while it was too crappy to get to work my car found the grocery and the beer. Those were good times. Sigh...

Central Tennessee, apparently, doesn't even get snow. WTF? But we do get freezing rain, as I found out this morning when I went out to call the dogs in from doing their business and stepped on what I thought was wet wood. Nope. ICE. In bare feet. Gods I can be an idiot first thing in the morning.

Really Old drivers should NOT be allowed in the left lane. In fact there should be a special permit that only allows certain people in the left lane.

The old drivers of today learned to drive before there were interstates, and 55mph was fast. (Although the speedometers went to 140. I never understood that.)

Imagine what kind of trouble classic will get into when he's 85 and driving his age down the highway.

I don't buy it... my dad was born in 1934, and he's been ticketed for doing 80 going through Atlanta. He can put his foot down when he feels like it

I've got to say that i haven't noticed old people being the only ones that drive slowly in what we call the overtaking lane here. In fact, lately I've been pissed off with provisional drivers (around 19 yrs old usually) who like to just cruise in that lane.

Get the fuck outta the overtaking lane unless you're going past someone arsehole! I don't give a fuck how old you are or what sort of car you're driving. If you aren't overtaking, you shouldn't be in the right hand lane.

That's my theory. And if you don't like it, well, I have others.

I'll call with yuppie cyclists and amish horse and buggies, both found most commonly on winding back roads with no shoulders and a steep drop-off into a body of water on one side.

My inability to communicate without coming off as an asshole - maybe I am an asshole.
