I got a speeding ticket this morning. 75 in a 60. That's not even speeding. Frowny face.

s'ok though. I'm in way too good of a mood to have it ruined by a fat motorcycle cop.

so how are the police fucking up your life these days?

    Um... 75 in a 60 is speeding.
    In California, if you're going 75 in a 60, you're probably moving a bit slower than most of the traffic around you.

    It's seriously a totally different culture from most of the rest of the country.

    seriously. i get so pissed when people are going 75 in the fast lane. fast lane is clearly 80 and up.

    the speed limit in MA is pretty damn lenient, too. As long as you're moving "with the flow of traffic" it's very rare that you'll be pulled over at all.

    only speeding ticket I ever got was going 50 in a 40

    bear in mind though that it was on a road where no one drives under 50

    no one, not even old people follow the speed limit on this particular street

    it was near the end of the month, so I figure the dude was filling his quota

    Basically if I can catch up to someone in the fast lane, they are driving too slow.

    One time in South Dakota I got pulled over for apparently not stopping enough when turning right on a red at 2 am.

    Cops in South Dakota really need more to do than try to catch drunk drivers.

    And yet an accident slows down all traffic for half an hour or more.

    Why don't you people, you know, slow down? Take life a little easier?

    we got pulled over for stopping too long at a stop sign

    the cop said 'waiting for that sign to turn green?'

    The only time I've ever been pulled over for speeding was about ten seconds before some other car rear-ended the police car behind me, and the cop told me to go home because now he had something much better to deal with.

    That's what it's like in California and most of the Northeast, too.

    Driving slow is lame.

    And when you swerve and hit the guard rail and do three corkscrews in the air before smashing into a beautiful ball of death and fire, you get to look cool on the 6:00 news.

    The only time i've been pulled over was in New Jersey. I was doing 85 in a 65. The cop let me off though since he saw I was military and I told him I was dropping off my friend and just trying to get home.

    when i would drive with my dad he would always tell me to go faster (when I was at the speed limit) and he was a cop

    then one day i decided to let him drive back from the store and he got pulled over for speeding (like 7 miles above the limit) and i laughed pretty hard at him

    this. so much this.

    I spent the first 6 years of my driving life in New Mexico, where all highways are two lanes each way and you can get pulled over for not obeying the basic principle of 'slower traffic keep right'. it is so aggravating to come out here and have people be all 'humph i'm going the speed limit in the fast lane and anybody who wants to pass me should in fact slow down instead'.

    if you don't press the walk button well before the light changes, it won't even stay green long enough to cross the street

    Yeah, Speed limit traffic really belongs in the middle lane.

    But I really do not see an awful lot of people doing anything faster than 75 in the fast lane in So Cal.

    Deer mostly, we have them all over the place here. Come around a turn at night going 80 on the interstate and next thing you know there are half a dozen deer jumping in front of your car.
