People need thicker glasses, they see 65 as 80. There's stretches of 4 lanes on the GSP and I'm in the far right lane doing 65 in a 65, meanwhile soccer mom Sally is on her cell phone, drafting me, other hand thrown up in the air as she passes me, foot to the floor. Yea it's me! It's a little humor that makes my 75 mile commute somewhat entertaining.

I'm thinking of getting a banner for my rear window

I've been wondering what the most appropriate hand gesture might be for those situations. Vulcan Salute?
