What amazes me is what I call "straight line" drivers.

Might be the software doing the actual throttle in todays cars, but I notice an acceleration slower than what I do, but where I ease off to do the speed limit they quickly catch up and pass me like I'm standing still. They have to be doing 10-15 over the speed limit.

And an irony, they come to almost a complete stop to turn, like a G-force allergy.

I mean seeing a $75,000 BMW turn at the same speed as a 1970's pickup truck overloaded with scrap metal is mind shattering.

Compared to myself people fly up on stops and brake at last second. No patience for coasting I guess.

Driving style is part of the math here, no doubt.
