And you are saying when driving on the highway, you never go above the speed limit when you change to the left lane, even with your extensive 20 to 30 years of driving. Isn't that an itty bitty lie?
I've never been stopped or received a ticket for speeding, even though I do go a few miles over the speed limit now and then.
I've never been one to excessively speed. Those 5 extra seconds don't count for much. I'd rather get there in one piece and don't mind if someone gets there 5 seconds ahead of me.
Four of my friends in high school lost their lives while speeding one night after a football game. Before that, my uncle and his family of six children were hit head-on by a drunk driver who was speeding and lost control of his car. Every kid (my cousins) in his family survived, but they've all had extensive surgeries, and bodies full of metal plates, parts and pieces to replace those lost in the accident and have suffered life-long pains that speeding drunk driver caused them more than 40 years ago.
Recently, my brother's step-son was speeding, lost control and rolled his car into a drainage ditch. His passenger nearly died while the driver fractured both legs, his collar bone and his pelvis. They had to use the jaws of life to cut them out of this car.
So, no, I don't have a whole lot of sympathy for someone who wants to speed just for kicks and giggles and get there a couple seconds faster than the other guy. I have even less sympathy for the whining about the unfairness of being stopped and ticketed for speeding. You have no idea what unfairness is until your life has been irreversibly changed by a speeding driver.
