I would like to point out that most speed signs are a MAXIMUM
speed, and its not illegal to do less, but it is illegal to do more.
Most people that drive the speed limit on the hill, down to the highway in winter, on my road, I pass anyways, since they are in the ditch.
In winter that hill is safe at maybe half the posted speed, if you have GOOD winter tires all around.
I actually got passed there 2 winters ago, and the car hit the ditch maybe 500 feet after passing me.
Think they might have clued in that I was going about 40 in a 70 zone for a reason. And I run studded winters all around in winter.
Some highways etc. do have minimum allowable speeds, and if you see someone breaking this law by all means get their lic plate number and report them, if road conditions are great. Those minimum speeds are void in adverse weather conditions.
Also sometimes people are looking for an address, or enjoying the scenery, or whatever. So when safe to do so, by all means pass them.
I pass people regularly, but ONLY when its safe to.
