Driving in the united states.. i have felt more secure driving in there type of environment.. everyone keeps up with each other at speeds way over the limit..

While in Florida.. i was on the high way about 3 times a day.. mostly coming back from the beach... the people there drive amazing!.. the speed limit is posted at 60mph... people clocking about 80+.. cops/ specifically the speed trappers. they are cool!.. im in my cousins bimmer coming back (him driving).. the cop didnt even pull him.. or any of the driver off (my cousin said as long as your not passing everyone else quickly, meaning 100mph+)... believe it or not.. i felt better and actually safer doing this.. .. Brampton now.. DIRT.. on the 401.. you have the newbies on the road that come from places with donkeys and carts going UNDER the speed limit.. doing improper lane changes and just generally SUCK at driving... now heres what blows my mind.. they say.. SPEED KILLS.. too some parts yes.. but also those who cant handle being under pressure.. quick reactions.. and last second thinking.. there the people who screw us experienced and skilled drivers over.. (im not talking about those who think they can drive.. but those who can DRIVE) as its been said before.. the system is highly ****ed.. and im sure the people that make these rules drive also.. how come they cant see what WE are complaining about with there own eyes?? Damn people!

I just gotta repeat whats already been said on page one,
pennies out the sunroof or sometimes just lay down a rolling roadblock.

Honestly if I'm pissed off to the point that I'm doing this, you deserve it.

Glad I didnt do this in the states one time though when I was driving my integra. A malibu was tailing me for like 2 minutes, light traffic beside me, two lanes. Well I get sick of this jackass behind, and being 19 instead of getting over, I went from 5th to 4th, to redline to .... uh oh. Well that malibu was an unmarked cop apparently. (for those haven't owned an integra the top of 4th is 180). So I went from an adrenaline rush to... wtf was I thinking, im dead.

Anyways I pull into the right lane, start slowing down. the malibu pulls up beside me, rolls down his window and motions for me to do the same. I do and get the worst lecture from a cop Ive ever got while driving 120km/h. pretty much went like this
Cop-"what the hell are you thinking"
me-"I thought there was just some asshole tailing me" well hey there was....
cop- "Slow the **** down"
me- "ok"
He takes off.
Seriously though, he was so close I could see what he was wearing when he was behind me, a suit. So last thing I figured was "hey a cop". But that suit is probably what saved me, probably thought of himself as to important to be writing a ticket. Cheers you lazy S.C. cops.

So yeah, throwing pennies isn't always the best idea, im sure I woulda got more than a rolling lecture.

Yup, that's the scary part. Whenever I see a 5+ year old corolla doing 80 in the left lane and all I see is two hands on the top of the wheel, no driver, I just pass on the right.

I don't think it has anything to do with what race you are.
Some people are at different driving levels than others, to make a comment like that makes you look like ignorant

Three simple rules for a three lane road:

1. If there's no traffic or you're not passing anyone you should be in the far right lane.

2. If you're passing someone in the right lane you should be in the centre lane.

3. If you're passing someone in the centre lane you should be in the left lane.

Rinse and repeat.

Actual speed has nothing to do with it.
