I drove up to Collingwood this week, and of course, drove back.
I came back along Airport Road from Stayner through to Brampton and Mississauga.
Except for the towns and villages, the speed limit on Airport Road is eighty kilometres per hour. I drove at eighty kilometres per hour because I have nothing to prove.
I don’t have a big problem with people who want to travel faster than the speed limit, say ten kilometres above the limit, but that 10% increase in speed represents a 20% increase in energy dissipated in a collision. Still and all ...
Three cars trailed me, we will call them “A”, “B” and “C”.
Here came a stretch where they could overtake, and so A, B, and C, being upset at having to be held up by me, overtook me.
As they set off a head of me, I noticed that B and C must still be upset, because they were still stuck behind A.
And A was still upset because he was being urged to go faster than he wanted to go by B and C.
In short, even after overtaking me, all three were still upset.
