The golden rule is; Don’t forget to put your lippy on before you leave home.

Despite a low speed limit. Too many aggressive drivers drive a few inches behind anyone driving within the speed limit, trying to push you faster.

Not me, just driver slower.

A lot of drivers have trouble keeping under 30 M.P.H on this stretch of road.

How can you possibly have a problem driving at 30 mph in a 30 mph speed limit
all you have to do is change into a lower gear. I know if you are elderly that would
be difficult, as they tend to keep in one gear whatever the circumstances.

A higher revving engine in lower gear wastes fuel and causes pollution. Speed limits should be a minimum of 35 to ensure a high gear can be utilised at all times.

Better to waste fuel and keep people safe, but being a woman driver you probably wouldn’t understand.

Do an advanced police driving course and the police say always use 3rd gear in a 30 zone, it maintains speed easier as well as traction.

They get paid, and paid well, and can afford to waste fuel, others can’t

I have driven various cars along that road at the speed limit of 30mph; but I nearly always end up with some idiot in a huge ego booster car driving on my bumper. I love it when that happens-you will not make me break the law by trying to intimate me !!!!!

Totally agree, I always use cruise control. I think you mean intimidate. Intimate is, well, something else.
