People that do not know how to properly merge into traffic, there is always a back up on the freeway here (Deerfoot trail) at most of the merges as the people coming on are going less than the speed required to get into the traffic.

I'm with BCboy on this one.

I can keep up with the best of them but I go with the flow unless I have a lot of safe and empty road ahead of me. Then I tend to drift into the 90+ zone at times.

Trust me, in places that are meant for speed, I love to rip it.
I race my drag car, race motocross and hare scrambles, even run my street bikes at the strip on occasion.
I have done track days and weekends.
I know of an old abonded strip of asphault about 6 kms long, and take my bikes and occasionally my corvette out there and drive the crap out of them.
But on public roads, in traffic, thats no dang place to play or drive like a jerk.
I do not mess with the lives of others.
And thats what a speeding, reckless driver is doing.
When you plow into and hurt, or kill people, its not going to be funny......and everyone seems to theink they will never be that one........yet look how many motor vehicle crashes happen every year.

Britney, out of curiosity how many miles of this road are no passing areas to where you live.

its.... less than pleasing thats for sure. when i see a tractor off in the distance from atop one of the numerous hills, i light a cig and sit back a while. if i drove my truck to work, id just go around em on the grass since they arent going too fast.
