silver HYUNDAI  Sonata
Meridian, Idaho


Where do I start? I ended up behind this beached sea turle doing the typical Idaho "5 mph" UNDER the dpeed limit on Lake Hazel. You then, not only drove really slow, but also thought that driving on the shoulder was acceptable as well.

When the speed limit increased to 50 you thought 45 would be ok.

At the stop sign at Eagle road, you thought that maybe you should wait for an enternity before going.

Then, as you inched your way up the gentle hill, you decided to perhaps do some sight seeing at 40 in the 50mph zone!!

Get a clue, jerk off!! THe gas pedal is on the right!! Use it!!!! Your Hyundai isn't going to break. Or did you forget to feed the hamsters powering it. Or maybe you couldn't afford the hamsters and bought the model with the turtles!!

Scenic IDAHO...Perhaps they were watching the potatoes growing? Some people just don't get it do they? Put that Hyundai in "B" for boogie and lets go! Ay?

How long until we see a wire about the impatient guy behind the silver hyundai. :D If there's one thing in this world that's not going to make me drive faster (quite the contrary... it's some impatient tailgater that forgets that the LIMIT is the LIMIT... and "impeding traffic" legally begins 15 mph below that... not 5 mph above it. And the "stop... one thousand, 2 one thousand" behavior at the stopsign is word-4-word fropm the "How to deal with the impatient driver" playbook. You're SO MAD at his guy who legally was doing nothing wrong. Annoying, maybe... but he sure managed to get an emotional response out of you... including some personal insults, and who do you think that reflects upon more?

ok, I'm kind of torn here......

The poster said...." ended up behind this beached sea turle doing the typical Idaho "5 mph" UNDER the dpeed limit..." What did you expect then?

On the flip side to, the poster has the right to at least be able to go the speed limit. 10 under would infuriate me also. Question though, why didn't you just pass this idiot?

I would have passed this guy except for all of the oncoming traffic that prevented me. Also, He may have evoked an emotional response out of me, but it wasn't just because of him. It is all of the other Idahoans that drive in the same manner as this driver does. There is absolutely no reason, especially when there is no traffic in front of you, to be driving so slow. I am a very patient driver most of the time, except when I get behind the person that doesn't know how fast they are suppossed to be going. Sure, if you are by yourself on a country road, drive how you feel. However, if you are being followed by a dozen cars, pull over or speed up.

It's soooooo funny to me! For the very reason that platewire was founded the site now finds itself inundated with the people that were offensive in the first place. All you posters who rail about someone who IS NOT breaking the law while you blatantly BREAK THE LAW is just so comical. It is actually really sad that this is how we treat each other. As usual I know that you will all justify yoiur rude and law breaking ways. Turn in your license to be a human. Forget about the driving part.

The magic word is LIMIT; it doesn't mean the driver has to be hitting the maximum LIMIT. Be courteous and pass without getting so PISSED OFF!
