Things That Bug Me Mucho...

Subject: Interstate Driving
  • Breaking for cops. Please don't break for cops. Especially when they are pulled over giving someone else a ticket. The speed limit does not go from 75 to 50 when a cop is on the side of the road. Just try to keep it under 80!

  • Slow exiters. When you exit the interstate, please don't slam on your breaks before you are on your exit. There is plenty of time to stop before you get to the end of the off ramp.

  • This bugs me most of all!! Do you see it? There are 5 semis, tailgating each other, and trying to pass each other. This was my view for FORTY TWO miles. I was actually starting to feel a little road rage.

  • Things I love about driving on the Interstate:
    • 6% grades and jake breaks {oh how I love the sound of jake breaks!}
    • I love seeing all the windmills.
    • 6 or 8 lanes
    • I love to drive fast.
    Here are the stats for our trip to Utah:
    Max Speed: 95 MPH (Idaho, right after the Utah line on our way home.)
    Moving Time: 49 hours, 43 minutes
    Moving Average: 60 MPH. (Not too bad for driving almost 50 hours!
    Total Miles: 2,982.
