You seem to think you are some kind of unique, wunderkind savant when it comes to driving because you live in NYC.

No, little buddy. Find other things in life to be proud about.

Yes, but the roads are full of distracted drivers who do. And drunk and high ones. You never know when you're going to have to react on a dime. It's much easier to stay in control when you are going a reasonable speed. I'm not even saying you have to go 55 or 65. But 110? That is ridiculous and not anywhere in the realm of normal. Not even the "I speed all the time" dude bros on this thread will agree with you.

Not to mention there are tractor trailers, commuter buses, and school buses who cannot, or will not, go much faster than the speed limit. And taxi/cab/livery/limo/Uber/Lyft drivers who will not go absurdly above the speed limit for professional reasons. As well as cars and minivans with drivers who have babies and toddlers in the backseat, who are driving near the speed limit or only 10 above, for safety. And people like DannyHobkins who might have a gimpy car that's operating on a spare tire. And Pennsyltucky Sunday Drivers going 54 mph for no goddamned reason.

If you are the lone arsehole who is going 110 because you think you are spay-shul, you are putting everyone else at risk (yes, even those of you who go 75 and 85).

In any case, thank you for not texting/talking while driving. Are you doing drugs, though?




Naughty, naughty.

Put down the drugs, and grow up, bro.

First and foremost...my butt is not hurting or otherwise in pain. My butt feels pretty good, actually. It is sufficiently exercised (but not to the point of soreness or muscle fatigue), it is clean, covered by high quality fabrics, warm, and sitting on a chair as soft as a cloud. My butt is 10/10 your life butt goals. Thanks for your concern, though!

Second, the fact that you think hitting 105 is an "achievement", and you're name dropping Bugatti, tells us everything we need to know about you. WhoTF cares what a Bugatti can do on a German racetrack? The highway is not a racetrack for your entertainment or recreation.

OR FOR YOU TO GET YOUR ROCKS OFF. For example...




BRO. Speeding is not better than sex. What kind of sex are you having? I'm going to start a GoFundMe to hire some high end escorts. First for Potanta so he does not have to eat alone at restaurants. And now for you too, so we can keep our highways safe.



YOU'RE WELCOME EVERYBODY IN NJ

Maybe trying doing the sex with one of them. It might make you let go of this speed fixation, and you can start living your best life.

Oh that's a whole other level of driving. Reminiscent of Lord of the Flies. Driving in Manhattan? No thanks!

I do not know you, but in my 48th year of life, this is the most I've ever known about anyone's buttocks, ever. Also, as a NJ resident, thank you. Proceed!

You will hereby be known as Darwin's outlier.

You seriously need to know that you're on borrowed time. I'm thinking that I'm going to get a snarky diatribe from you about this, but I hope that you will quietly reflect for a moment on the laws of physics before natural selection turns you into a bag of blood and bones trapped in a heap of burning metal. Let me be clear on this-I don't want this for you and hope it doesn't happen, but it seems to be what you are begging for.

I guess he's a Jessi Combs' fan.

He should drive in the Philly market of NJ (the SW part) but have PA tags - he'd feel almost right at home.

But I agree he's on borrowed time if he continues with his current driving habits especially driving in a higher population area = the odds are against him. I wish him a long healthy and happy life.

Did 80+ on NJ I-80 most of the way both yesterday and Tuesday, with periods in the high 80s and the occasional excursion to 100. Funny thing is a State Trooper passed me on Tuesday.


(and yes this includes the curvy section at the Delaware Water Gap. That's the best part!)

If NJ SP monitored these pages, you'd be charged. Wonder if they do.


Calling all deer, calling all deer and an occasional bear. Rut is soon to be here, have fun.

If a state trooper passed me after following me while I was doing 80mph and didn't ticket me, I don't think I have much to worry about posting on this forum.

As for the deer and the bear, they're in the rear-view.

If you're doing 80, you should hit them rather than another car of fixed object.

I'm still not sure if I'd be able to do that, but it's better than hitting something like a tree.

Ah, grasshoppa, that was one state trooper. Not all state cops see things the same way and on the same day.


If you do hit a deer at 80mph you can contact the nearest PD and get a permit to keep the deer and feast.

Was he driving on 27 in Colonia/Iselin today? Someone crashed right into a pole on the opposite side of the street from the direction of travel.


I can never quite understand the single car crashes. What the heck? Drunk? Medical issue? In any case driver looked fine, but the car was toast. Good thing there was no one in his way when he crossed the oncoming traffic lanes.
