This really is a topic that baffles me and I get the chance to think about it wherever I drive. Why is it that some people will happily do 50mph in a 60 limit only to do 40mph as soon as they hit a 30 zone? This makes no sense to me. Either you’re the type of person who sticks to the speed limit, or you’re not but I encounter one of these erratic drivers pretty much every time I head to the coast.

I would really love to know your thoughts on this. I assume people drive below the speed limit because they are nervous drivers or safety conscious. Surely, if they are nervous, they’d welcome the slow down to 30 and if safety is important to them, they’re more likely to kill someone doing 40 in a 30….

Maybe they are all nervous/safety conscious but have places to be.
