i've really been trying to drive 65 to better my car's gas consumption and because it's the law (don't laugh). my strategy on the lighter commutes home lately have been to get in the second lane from the right behind a car going about 65. too bad i too often end up tailing him/her. bleh.
it also doesn't work on days like today where i drove from home to fountain valley to seal beach to west adams to west hollywood to beverly hills back to west adams en route to koreatown then all the way west to santa monica and then home again. i just get way too impatient, and what's a girl to do when you're seriously behind the slowest car on the freeway?
dear southern californians,
please slow down so that i don't feel so alone going the speed limit on the freeway. i know our freeways are great and even engineered for safety even at high speeds, but we also pay some of the highest prices in the nations for gas. thank you in advance for your cooperation my car's various bits and parts and most importantly my wallet will thank you.
