Video: A Meditation on the Speed Limit

posted in Musings |

Subtitle: “An extraordinary Act of Public Obedience”

Students from Georgia State University decided to be law-abiding citizens and drive the speed limit, exactly the speed limit, around the “Perimeter” in Atlanta to see what would happen.  Although this little experiment was a bit contrived (i.e., they “locked door handles” across all four lanes), it very clearly points out how those who insist on driving slowly in the left lanes can provoke other drivers, some of whom end up making terribly unwise and dangerous decisions as a result.

Watch this video and keep your eyes peeled for those who drive off onto the shoulder to get around.  One vehicle (a white van) clips the side mirror off a parked car and could have plowed into the back of it under slightly different circumstances.
