Even though this would be a wake-up call to those cars that go way too fast, it'd be very dangerous to try this. I'm wondering if somebody would ever drive a modified car with spikes and plated armor, just to ram someone blocking their precious highway space....

these guys are tosser's yes they may have been sticking to the speed limit but overtaking lanes are just that and there are rules about not overtaking when in that lane. If people want to go slower than the flow of traffic there are slow lanes. I'm outty

HAHA these people are stupid but i give them kudos becuase their plan worked like a charm, speed limits are bullshit if not followed or even enforced.

Been done before in Canada. A guy in Sask. got a ticket on the Trans Canada highway for doing 10 over the speed limit. Got a buddy and they both did exactly 100 km/hr and they both got tickets for obstructing traffic or dangerous driving or something. He showed the cop his first ticket and sorta asked which is it gonna be? Anyway, went to court to dispute it, and I'm pretty sure he lost and had to pay both fines. Go Canadian justice system...

Man, I hate people driving fast (above the limit allows) on the roads and also hate people doing shit like this. Ok, Atlanta residents, come to California, there's a limit up to 65 MPH, and 70 MPH on some Interstate routes. But hell, I always see people swift pass my car when I drive at 65-70 MPH LOL... actually, my truck, Chevy S10 1990. Yeah, very reliable commercial pick-up :))

Come to Cali?... yeah. i live in Cali and have lived in many other states.... but Cali drivers are fucking idiots... and I was born and raised here. FUCKING IDIOT DRIVERS .... get off the fucking road or go head-first into a pole.. please!!!

All the more reason to carry a BB gun in your car and start blowing out tail lights of people in your way. That will teach them to drive slow and cut you off.

Dallas has no speed limits..fast or slow..everyone here is handed a fuckin license for coming to the state. Some go 80, some go 10. But the question is...which one is packin heat? Road rage is just another term for Texas socializin.

I know what you mean currentuser, I lived in Austin for awhile. LOL@ THEBULL. I don't know where you're from, but if you shot someone's tail light out in TX or AZ with a bb gun, you will probably be driving a car with bullet holes in the side of it.

Would have wanted to see a 18 wheeler push them of the road! Stupid losers! Driving 55 on a 4 lane road, how crazy is that? In europe we will all be driving 80mph at the least!

^^ @ currentuser -

Hell yeah, man. I live in Dallas as well, and you hit the nail right on the head. I've exceeded the limit on LBJ and Dallas Parkway SEVERAL times, and not once have I even SEEN a cop, nor received any complaints from other drivers.

However, I WAS pulled over for going 10 MPH over a school zone while dropping off my brother. Like 5 minutes before the fucking thing was over. I was slapped with a 250 dollar fine, plus another 150 for court fees. Damn it to hell.

Gotta say 55 for a safe piece of road like that is a little excessive, I've driven on single lane interstate highways where most state limits are 110 kmh (70mph), Northern Territory even has no posted limits outside built up areas.

They fail to realize driving side by side is illegal ..(obstruction of traffic)

Why don't these assholes do something productive with their efforts and either work on getting the speed limit changed or kill themselves. Either way, acting like a group of fucktards like this would only align me against their stupid ass "movement."

DC Tim- if you live in DC then I suggest you use bulletproof glass on your car. Those people drive like idiots already AND they have one of the nations highest murder rates. Not bad for a city that outlawed guns.

Dudes- I know being caught up in this sort of thing would rile most everybody, especially nowdays, BUT, it is a good way to point out the ABSURDITY of a 55mph speedlimit on freeways designed for 75mph, which was their point in the first place. They hate artificially low speedlimits as much as you do, but at least THEY are trying to do something about it. Many of you posters just like to rant, but don't actively try to change absurd laws such as this.

This sort of thing was proposed by many of us trying to change the 55mph nationwide speedlimit in the mid 80s in the Northwest. What the organizers likely didn't do, however, is advertise that they were OPPOSED to the 55mph limit with signs on their cars, radio, tv, magazines, and whatever other advertising medium and that those who are also opposed to the limit to come sign a petition which will be taken to the local authorities or submitted for ballot action etc etc etc.

monkeyfuck... DC is just my nickname. Nothing to do with comics before you ask. I'm British. I just think it would be great to piss people off on the M25... That's assuming traffic is moving in the first place..

DC- okay- just commenting on how the clowns in the Washington DC area are full of anger and ammo and can't drive for shit.

Governments love 55-MPH speed limits. It lets them enforce the traffic law arbitrarily, under the cover of saving gas and lives.

Yeah, I know, Turd, George Bush invented the number 55 and 5+5 = 10 and there are ten letters in "George Bush" too.

Shit where I'm from (upstate NY) these kids would be DEAD. The speed limit on highways, for the most part, is 65...but you bet your ass we're all doing @ LEAST 80 mph.

Its funny.... in Germany most of the Autobahn has no speed limit.

When you drive on it for a while you realise just how retarded a speed limit is. Its recommended you do 80mph, but some people were passing me and they were probobly doing about 150mph.
