Driving can be Crazy

on December 5, 2011

I went to work today in a different location.  The hour long drive was comfortable (I love my heated seats!), but a few of my road-mates were crazy.  It never ceases to amaze me how fast some people drive, and yet how slow others drive.  The speed limit in my area is 65 mph.  I am comfortable driving approximately 70 to 75 mph.  Some of my road-mates today were happy to blow past me at approximately 95 mph and yet others were happy to cruise along at approximately 55.

I have one more day at this alternate location, but I get to leave my house at 4am to arrive there on time.  I know that at 4:30, my freeway begins getting quite populated, so I’m hopeful that the half hour I have before that occurs will make a difference.  

While I’m on the subject of driving in my area, I’d like to vent about fog lights.  My car has fog lights, and I think they are a great addition, but I live in the desert and I’ve only had 1 occasion to use them in the past 4 or so years.  Each work morning I leave near 4:30, so I have to use my headlights on my morning commute.  However, I don’t feel it necessary to also hit the button that activates my fog lights.  They do not come on automatically, I have to actively turn them on.  Many of my road-mates, however, seem to think they can’t drive in the dark without turning on their fog lights and their headlamps.  I know that fog lights will give off more light closer to the ground, but come on people, do you really need to create more of a distraction for the people driving near you?  You are going over 70 mph in the dark and you really want to distract the people you are approaching at 70 mph?  Come on, it’s time to stop creating more distraction than necessary!

    Thanks for visiting over at my blog again!

    I agree with you about the drivers. My husband and I drive 10 hours to Atlanta about every other month and it’s crazy out there. The slow lane doesn’t even do the speed limit, and the other two lanes are waaaaay over the limit.
