The_Six_Fingered_Man: Not too familiar with I-75? I can ride the left lane all day long at 75 and be passing someone. The statute that you cite even prohibits staying in the second left lane of a 4 lane highway.
hobnail: Odd Bird: What the hell were they thinking when those were put on cars?Safety, of course. My current car has them. At least once it gets dark you have to turn the headlights on to engage the backlighting on the dash.My wife's car doesn't have them but the dash lights are always on. So if you're in a well-lit area, it's not hard to forget to turn the lights on.
ArcadianRefugee: Some jackass is doing the speed limit? How dare he!
Odd Bird: What the hell were they thinking when those were put on cars?
The_Six_Fingered_Man: Absolutey horrendous. And everyone wonders why the 275 is always congested. It's because of people changing lanes every .2 miles feet because that lane is moving 2 1 MPH faster.
almandot: That's great but first get rid of the whole changeable speed limit signs in downtown. The freeways/toll roads leading to downtown drop to 55 and now one goes it but then in downtown they have digital speed limit signs that drop to 50, 45, 40 etc depending on how much traffic there is. I have never seen anyone go as slow as those signs say. Even folks who always stick to the speed limit. If there's enough traffic you can't go anywhere it slows to a crawl but if there's room to go faster than 40 people are doing it whether the sign says to or not.
hobnail: Sean M: bingethinker: Some states used to have minimum speeds posted on their freeways. ... l. But if they pushed it up to 55 minimum and actively ticketed senile idiots doing under that limit, it might get them to speed up.In the past few months I remember coming across a geriatric who was doing ~45mph in the centre lane. That'll wake you up when you're cruising along at ~75mph.Or, going 60 in the center lane in a 75 mph zone. At night. With on DRLs (so no tail lights)./I threw my underwear away at the next stop.

BravadoGT: bluorangefyre: I-75 should be fun, especially at the Georgia line. Now the far left lane will be plaid.GSP will be there to line Georgia's pockets with speeder money, that's for sure.
Misconduc: 75? try 80-85 in the fast lane. What they need to do is keep the assholes doing under 70 to the right side and enforce it. I was driving down I-4 to tampa yesterday and bottle neck traffic because these assholes keep doing 65/70 in the left lane. They can do 70 in the middle and 65 in the right, this keeps the traffic flowing, but there's always some jackass doing 70 in the left causing bottle neck traffic and all it takes is one accident to shut down a road for an hour./frankly even if they raised it to 80people will still be doing 70 in the left lane, damn tourist/soccer moms/assholes
