I will probably receive much hatred and pent up rage for this post, but as I am completely honest about everything else I feel that this must be said.
The speed limit is the speed LIMIT. No more is legal (we’re not counting passing).
In fact, in inclement weather and other poor conditions drivers are encouraged to drive a little slower.
Therefore–I reserve the right to drive in the fast lane going exactly the speed limit and no more. If I wanted to drive in the slow lane I would be driving under the speed limit.
The word limit does not mean that 60 mph on the freeway is a nice jumping-off point, a guide line, or friendly suggestion, it means that if you are driving above it you are breaking the law.
I don’t think that law-breakers should be allowed to intimidate me into capitulating and moving over.
So if you ride my tail for miles and then pass me on the right (which is not safe) as quickly as you can I will not be shamed or embarrassed. I will be proud in knowing that I forced you to go the speed limit for a few miles.
So everyone who does not want to be bullied into speeding simply because they enjoy driving in the left lane, take a stand for speed-limit-driving!
