What Happens When You Obey The Speed Limit

May 13th, 2006


Recall that the speed limit is an upper limit, not a lower one. A group of people decided to see what would happen if they all drove 50 MPH in the 55 MPH zone of an interstate highway. They lined up next to each other, taking up all four lanes and forcing the cars behind them to also go 50. The results were impressive—one driver lost his side mirror while passing them on the shoulder. (Note: the sound quality of the video isn’t that good, but I still found it worth watching.)
