I've asked him if English is his second language, but he has never answered. I got hit with a point for being rude. I will not mock or criticize anyone who is not a native speaker.

Hell, most of my posts contain errors.

Wow the Internet Grammar police is out at full force. Conversely I always wonder about people who are spellcheck and grammar nazis and what they do in real life. Try correcting your boss who supposed to possess MBA and 20+ year experience.

retriever takes that to an unnecessary level. not everyone is going to have perfect grammar/spelling for whatever reasons. im not interested in trying to put someone down for those errors. but some people get a little self satisfaction in it. vision, you did retriever a favor by letting him feel better about himself by trying to make you feel worse.

Really, there shouldn't be a speed limit. It's man made concept: we made the whole thing up. It's an arbitrary number that municipal traffic courts use as a means to extract revenue from. Instead of speed limit signs, have police officers enforce reckless driving citations on a common sense basis. Someone driving slow in the left lane, a truck driver changing lanes abruptly on an interstate and thus obstructing traffic flow, someone changing lanes often and erratically as a means to circumvent drivers driving at a reasonable and prudent speed would be yet one more example.

this is a conversation among citizens, not an attempt to change anything. while they law may say this and the government may do something; that has absolutely no impact on our opinions. if your opinion changes based on whatever the law happens to be, then you have zero morals. so dont bother citing the law or suggesting complaining to POS politicians.
opinions are like......

I drive 78 out to PA all the time. Nearly everyone drives 75 mph anyway, and as has been pointed out already, it’s the drivers who won’t keep up with the flow of traffic that cause issues as he majority then have to navigate around them.

Yes it is, and that's where I belong. I'm retired, so I don't need to pass anyone to make it to work on time.

didn't your mother ever admonish you... 'if your friends jumped off a bridge you would too???


speed limit is 65, most go over the speed limit. way over the limit.


target rich environment for tickets, think of yourself as a sheep in a pen or your own making, where you remain until being harvested by a cop for his ticket quota or municipality which needs a some cash for their coffers.


Insurance companies love the perception of latitude most drivers think they have been given by the law.


Get into an accident and have your speed listed at 1 mile over the limit and suffer financial consequences. the problem is, inconsistent enforcement of speed limits.


because you do 75 is no justification for drivers, who obey the speed limit and decide not to chance a ticket to be forced to break the law, to be forced to break the law along with you. Your speed creates the inconsistency safety problem.


Really, cars today can easily be driven faster than you think you are going because of the sound proof interiors. the same people who can't stay on their side of a double yellow line while driving a new car with all the latest technology have no business doing 75 in a 65....let alone 85 in a 75 zone.


the cars are capable of 75.. really 85... given the imaginary 10mph latitude. most drivers are not capable mentally. Especially on the congested roads in NJ with an exit every two miles and dump trucks and semis blocking the right two lanes and the perception that the driver with the right away has to yield to the driver with the yield sign. river rd and Washington ave in Piscataway is not rt 91 in Vermont or the ME turnpike!


Sure, some sections of road can easily handle a 75 mph limit, however, the change in speed limits would be too many and too brief. Sorry officer, thought I was still in the 75 zone. the state or feds are not going to slice and dice the speed limits on any stretch of NJ roadways. You have all seen the 55 mph signs on 287 and the parkway....drivers treat those zones as a 65 mph default. no one does 55 in those stretches unless they are transporting illegal drugs.


As for Pa, when is 78 or 80 not under construction?


You want to make a diff in traffic flow, let tractor trailers use the fast lane on three lane roads.
trucker complaints...


“Cars either jump in front of you to just slow down or cut in front of you as you are coming to a stop when they don’t realize how long it takes you to stop the truck,” Jones said. “I pull tankers full of chemicals, and I can tell you it isn’t easy to just stop.”




'Most major trucking companies use a device that limits the maximum speed of their vehicle to around 65 mph. Every day on the road, Klang said she will catch up to another truck which isn’t going its maximum speed at the time. She will start to pass, but then the other truck speeds up to 65 mph, creating a traffic crunch for Klang and surrounding motorists.
““It happens all day, every day,” '.


anyone ever notice the parade of trucks on our high speed highways? Especially in Nj with some many shipping centers and distribution hubs.


Manufacturers need to allow sound and vibration into the car's interior to aid the driver in gauging seat of pants speed, rather than reliance on gauges which no one seems to look at, given the proliferation of phones and pads. Isn't there an app available for making a driver feel as if they are going 'fast'?


Would be nice to drive 75 on Nj roads, rate limiting step, idiot drivers with no concern for others or of the consequence of defying gravity. Possession of a NJ or PA driver license does not equate to an equality of competence. Quite like the governments ppaca claim, that all doctors are equally competent.


Living bureaucratic fantasies in NJ.


Deer/car collisions would be a sight to see at 85.


there is always new England when nj is through with you.
