What is with the drivers in Pennsylvania?
On the drive east (clear weather), there were parts of the highway where the speed limit was 55 mph (I was driving 54.8 mph exactly) and cars were zooming past us so fast they were a mere blur. And we’re not talking about an occasional vehicle. Pretty much everyone on the road was doing a Speed Racer impersonation.
When did they put an autobahn in the middle of Pennsylvania?
I kept checking the road signs and the speedometer because I was convinced I had to have misread something. I hadn’t.
On the way back home (foggy and rainy) in that same stretch of Pennsylvania, cars were flying by (hard deck at about 2 feet above the road surface).
To the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Officers: While I was driving below the speed limit (because I would never drive even a skootch over the legal limit), I know a few spots where you can make your monthly speeding ticket quota in an afternoon.
In all fairness, I’m not saying that the speeds of various vehicles was anything like consistent in other areas. But that particular stretch just seemed to be a real airport.
