Not so much a suggestion over here lol i got done going 35 in a 30 limit over here yet it wasn't a built up area didn't even realize i was over the limit! the road should of been at least a 40mph for the area as there was no houses nearby! and there wasn't even any signs stating what the limit was!

Morning Everyone!

I must admit to my share of legal encounters on the road.  I drive into work early in the AM when no one is on the road and my little mini likes to go fast.  I've learned my lesson and am over taking on line defensive driving.

I don't think i know a single person that's not been done before or pulled over, and the more your on the road the more likely you are to get pulled over, i used to do 500 + miles a week and think i've only been done twice for speeding in 32 years through that's not to say i don't put my foot down Sarcastic_hand I think at certain times and places it is safe to drive fast through not in built up areas were people are likely to be about, i used to get pulled over every other night when i was fishing in the early hours through most of the time once they new me they just wanted to have a crack and see if i'd caught anything nothing better to do lol

RE: Chat hub
Good Morning All - cloudy here today after a beautiful week - so that is the summer over for this year. Went fishing twice this week but although it has been good weather it has been windy and it made dry fly fishing difficult - I still caught fish but really had to work hard at it. Squonking a nice Raspberry custard while I write this and I am on my third coffee - life is good[Image: smile.gif]. I hope you all have a nice day.

RE: Chat hub
Afternoon, all! 

I've driven about 1200 miles this week. It's really REALLY hard not to speed when you're out in the sticks on a boring highway with no one around. Usually I just set cruise control at +4 mph over the limit (ex. 74mph in a 70mph limit) and I've never been pulled over yet. Cruise control is a driver's best friend on those long trips. That and podcasts. I found a pretty good vaping podcast called "VP Live" It's definitely worth checking out if you like audio podcasts. Basically like a talk show for vapers.
