      Sounds nice. Every now and then I go out for some backroad night cruising and I'll probably see 5 zogBlack folk every 10 miles just sitting around trying to catch me. I hate florida so much. People always complained about kentucky cops when I lived there, but they were okay in my experience.

        Occasionally I will do for a highway drive about 1am on a weeknight. Such little traffic and no cops, it's the only time I can get higher than 120. Still haven't been able to reach 175 but I will some day.

    I math'd it out and did not find the time savings worthwhile. Even on long distances it's usually not worth it, because I'll arrive at some godawful hour where the only thing I can do is eat diner food and wait. I do like hashbrowns but I can't just go eating five pounds of potatoes just for no reason.

      Used a stopwatch to measure the time my journey took with aggressive vs leisurely driving, it was barely the time it took to walk to the car. I mostly only drive aggressive when driving for pleasure, not really when I need to get somewhere.

      I once had a close call and stopped and thought about the pain and expenses that could have happened, I keep a fair safety margin now

    Crashing first, and getting arrested second. I'm sure I doubled multiple speed limits in my last hoon sessions, but I didn't cause a crash and I didn't get arrested, so I wouldn't say I was driving recklessly. Keep your speeding secret and save crashing for the track.

    Watching HRH/Alex videos, even though she speeds lol. I used to drive like a fricking moron - I have 4 DUIS, lost my license 6 times, almost went to prison for evading police in chases, dodging debt collectors over a 55k no insurance crash, have had multiple other crashes one near fatal. But now when I have the desire to do something illegal like run a red, speed, or DUI, I just feel like Alex is judging me, calling me trashy, saying it's a "ghetto" thing to do. I mean, she's right. So I drive like a normie now. Save a lot of money and stress.

    Being 100% serious btw. I just feel like she's giving me this look and judging me for being white trash and it feels bad.

    Getting a job with a liveried vehicle and a tracker. I spent years in a van and learned that you genuinely don't get across towns much quicker by speeding and tailgating people, you just increase the risk of making a mistake and getting into accidents. Can't count the number of times I'd get overtaken by someone in a hurry only to pull up on them at the next set of lights, or get past them on a roundabout etc..
    I still drive fast on country roads as that's fun, but I was never one to go as fast as possible just for the sake of it, I was always conscious of how bad it'd be if something went wrong and drove accordingly, it's very easy to come around a corner too fast and have a tractor/cyclist in front of you, or some numpty coming the other way on your side of the road..

      Pretty much. With road densities increasing, it's increasingly more difficult and risky to shave off seconds, unless the driver is a maniac and disregards every law possible behind the wheel.

        Also traffic modeling has gotten way better with cell phones
        Sometimes it's actually faster to go the speed limits in a lot of places because you catch all the lights green

          >Also traffic modeling has gotten way better with cell phones
          That one is a big development in the last decade. Everyone carries a tracker on them voluntarily. Smartphones have certainly optimized a lot of stuff, even increase the pace of life, for better or worse.
          >Sometimes it's actually faster to go the speed limits in a lot of places because you catch all the lights green
          I find it's around 2-3 mph under the limit or 7-12 mph over the limit that makes timing better with a commuter car. I'd say the new meta to beat the lights isn't speeding, but acceleration. The faster someone can accelerate at any speed, the better they can clear any intersection. A lot of US traffic infrastructure is no longer timed, but responsive, and traffic engineers have adjusted to the saturation of smartphones.

          The average speed calculated between a set of fast lights is always significantly below the speed limit, so hitting above 6-8 mph above average speed allows people to clear yellows with impunity. Hitting an average speed 6-8 mph above the average on city/town roads involves sub-4 second 0-60 on a regular basis though, and rush hours erase any advantage to a fast car. Other people's cars are not that fast, and the minds of other drivers are oftentimes slower than the car.

    still working on not getting upset when the other drivers cut you off and abuse you because you're not driving as fast or aggressively as them. it gets tiring and frustrating after a while.
    however if a dump truck is flinging rocks down the road i will hit triple digits (mph) to get around the fricker. i've had to replace enough windshields in my life and they frick up the cowel every time.

      He stopped at a light that had turned green so I honked briefly
      I drive a cute car and even the horn is cute, it's the least offensive horn ever made
      He actually got out of his car and wanted to fight me in the street
      When he realized that I'm tall and fit, he turned around and got back in his car and drove off
      With his wife or GF probably calling him a dumb dickhead because this is America, you don't know what he's packing
      And she would be right
      I'd already made up my mind
      Had he not turned around
      I would have spent the night in jail

    When I was a teenager I read Aristotle and he said that a good life is also measured by a good death, which is a death that corresponds to the life lived, i.e. a warrior dying in battle.
    I realized that dying in traffic was the most pathetic way for me to go - I hate traffic, other drivers and the current state of highways - so I try to minimize the risks.
