recently, here on the roads of ontario, something strange is going on. people are driving under the speed limit.
on monday, victoria day, an irritating and unnecesary holiday, people who are normally somewhere else being told what to do are having to decide for themselves.
i think this is the problem. people are so afraid to make a mistake that they are driving a hair under the speed limit so, in thier mind, there is no possible way they will get a ticket.
except that people who are used to figuring shit out for themselves just want to get where they have to go with reasonable speed....and not at 85kph on a 100kph highway.
and it`s not just on holidays either. yesterday evening climbing the hill back home on an 80kph highway people were crawling along at 65-70kph.....
is is the recession? fear of losing one`s job? obama`s shirts?
