Not even then.
Can't recall how many states, but it's double digits, where you can get
a ticket for "Impeding the flow of traffic" by doing the speed limit in
the left lane.
IMHO people who cruise the hammer lane need to be taught what's right
and what's wrong..... but it *will* come in the for of a ticket for,
basically, not speeding when everybody else is.
I still chuckle when I think of this. On my way to work I use the
interstate for about 11 miles. Been taking this route for 26 years and I
know where the police sit, potentially 3 different spots.
Speed limit is 65 and I set the cruise control at 70. One morning was
was in the left lane at 70 while the right lane was cruising at 68 to 69
so I was slowly passing other cars. A guy comes up behind me and was
very impatient. I knew we were approaching of the the curves where they
sit so I did not speed up. Finally, I moved over when I could and the
guy whips around me, gives me the finger and 50 yards later the flashing
lights come on. I'd love to know what he was thinking then. Past that
spot I bump the CC up to 75.
My brother had a similar experience karma-wise. He was waiting in a
long line of stopped traffic and this Very Important Person in a very
expensive sports car passes him at speed going down the breakdown lane.
Some time later, traffic started moving again and he passed the sports
car: hubcap deep in the freshly-poured concrete....
Kind of warms the heart...
I do exactly that. Set cruise control for 25 and pull over A LOT.
When the radar detector goes off, I will sometimes pull over
and wait for the highway robbers to pass. Depends on the
road. Other time when the detector goes off, I will throttle
down from 5 under to 15 under as it is the officer's judgment
as to who is going how fast and I want to make it obvious it isn't me.
And, I still occasionally get my lunch money taken. SLEAZY POLITICIANS!

You are right there. There comes a time when bitching doesn't help.
I do go to great lengths to avoid speeding and speeding tickets. And
sometimes a little extra technology doesn't hurt either.
If I am speeding, it is only by accident. The radar detector is a
great nag device. Its job is to say: "HAY STUPID! PAY ATTENTION!!!
Or some nice young fellow with a badge and a gun is going to steel
your days wages!!!"
You certainly can't use a radar detector to get away with deliberate
speeding. They are just not that good.
Oh and don't laugh at him when he gets out of his car, sorry
'vehicle', and has to pull his pants up.
Where if you take you eyes off the road you crash or the road
bores you so to death your speed creeps up or you can't
remember what it was 10 miles ago and just keep up with traffic.
The Revenuers can be really tricky. That is why supplemental
technology is needed.
This is all about the money. SLEAZY POLITICIANS!
Oh brother. And you have driven these roads when? Speed
traps around these parts is a hot issues under everyone's
collar. You don't live here; you have no knowledge other
that what I tell you.
I don't speed. I go to great lengths not to speed.
The SLEAZY POLITICIANS go to great lengths to try to
trick us so they can get the fines.
Technology -- cruise control, radar detector -- goes
a long way to protect you against their trickery
Here is a list of traps:
I just to submitted East Valley Road, Mottsville Road, and
Centerville Lane. Hopefully, the additions will keep
others from being robbed by a badge and a gun.
What part of don't speed is escaping you? Do the limit and there is no
Do I get tickets, yes. Why? Because I was speeding. Pay the ticket,
slow down, move on.
It's called taking responsibility for one's actions.

Then their mamas and the neighborhood-- or national-- agitators raise
hell that the the media rushes to cover and presents their side of the
story while neglecting the crime(s) they committed that brought them to
the cops' attention in the first place and what they did to get their

The more telling issue is not so much what she did, but how she has
responded to being found out.
