One of the main roads we use to get to the freeway is a posted 45 MPH 6 lane divided road that really runs in the 50~55 range in the morning commute.
We call it Canyon Speedway
I drive my car like I drive truck, looking way ahead and minimizing brake use, conserving energy as much as possible and timing the lights. This will piss off the gas-n-brake crowd, but they can always get around me with 3 lanes to use.
I see more bad behavior there in 7 miles than the rest of my 23 mile commute.
I don't worry about the idiots, I just keep on keeping on.
