When the state trooper who pulls you over not because 50mph. is so bad in a 60 zone with 3 lane choices, but because the unskilled not look ahead crowd were making sketchy
last second passes around me.

I explained that I was trying to save gas at 50mph. He said isn't 55 a good mileage speed?

I replied that 50 was better. No ticket, but advised me to go at least 55.

That makes me grit my teeth. Thankfully my CRX aero is good, so maybe it won't hurt too much, but basically being told I HAVE to go a minimum of only 5 under to stay out of trouble???

An add to the insult was that he explained that he was a K9 unit, and that many times he has the dog come out to see if people like me are fit to drive.

This was in light traffic 8:10 AM on a Saturday on my way to church, and he's acting like I'm stoned or something.

Arrrrrrrgggggggg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
