she's 600 miles away and i don't get tickets like that, so forgive my
laziness if i don't head on down there just because you can't be
bothered to look up something simple like ca vehicle code 21654(a).
now, you go ahead and tell me your state doesn't have an equivalent.
"21654. (a) Notwithstanding the prima facie speed limits, any
vehicle proceeding upon a highway at a speed less than the normal
speed of traffic moving in the same direction at such time shall be
driven in the right-hand lane for traffic or as close as practicable
to the right-hand edge or curb, except when overtaking and passing
another vehicle proceeding in the same direction or when preparing
for a left turn at an intersection or into a private road or
As I read the law, it means that you have to drive on the right-hand
side of the road if you're traveling more slowly than the prevailing or
normal speed. It doesn't say you have to keep up if the normal speed is
faster than the speed limit.
then you don't understand what you're reading. translated it means:
"slugs keep right or you'll get a ticket for not keeping up, regardless
of 'prima facie' posted limits." and my grandmother is multiple
testimony to that.
now you go ahead and figure out what prima facie speed limits mean.
you have willful myopia. i've just come back from shopping, 70 in my
crx in a 55 zone. i was going the same speed as everyone else, and
guess what kind of vehicle was behind me before i turned off the
freeway? [hint: permitted != posted]
