To be fair, if the traffic was really going 100mph, it would have been incredibly dangerous for her to go 60. Cops who pull people over when they're going the speed of traffic are clearly just trying to fill their quota. On the other hand, I don't think I've ever been anywhere where the traffic was that fast. I suspect the OP is lying.
"A business man, late to a meeting, speeds on the freeway. He notices that the cars around him are all going at the same or a higher speed than he is, so he feels pretty safe. Nevertheless, a cop pulls him over. After losing ten minutes of his time and being given a speeding ticket, the man is furious. He complains to the police officer. 'Officer, there were plenty of cars speeding around me. So why did I have to get the ticket?' The police officer simply smiles at him. 'Sir, have you ever gone fishing?' Taken aback by such a seemingly random question, he stutters out a response. 'Uhm... y-yeah, I do fish occasionally. What does that have to do with anything?' 'Ever caught all the fish?'" YDI. Don't speed.
try georgia. the redneck part of georgia. they drive like that here all the time. i believe the op because i constantly have to drive a little over the speed limit just to get the rednecks with their big pick up trucks to stop tail gating me. if i go the speed limit, they get all mad and reckless and try to pass my car dangerously. so yeah, because of a bunch of idiots that want to go 100 mph, i have to go at least 60 mph when the speed limit is 55. luckily the cops here speed and popcorn all over the high way too, so w/e for me. sorry op :/ while speeding is still speeding, sometimes it's more dangerous not to speed on a road full of idiots.
Even if you are going the speed limit while everyone else is speeding a cop can give a ticket for " obstructing the flow of traffic" it has happened to people I know. Going 40 less than everyone else is very dangerous. Take this bad example: the speed limit is 60 and you are going 20 is that not dangerous also it causes a backup in traffic, there are minimum speed limits on freeways -that are not posted- for a reason.
That's the typical predator/prey routine. The predator chooses the slowest and weakest of the herd. Thanks for letting us know that you are slow and weak. That might come in handy during a food shortage.
so YDI - speed limits are there for a reason! and of course the police will go for the slowest, is there any point in overtaking you to speed to catch the others up? (no.)
