Sometimes I forget how fawking crazy New England drivers are. It becomes such commonplace that I don’t really notice. I was bebopping up Rt95 north. It’s a main artery around the outskirts of the Boston area that’s 4 lanes wide on each side. the traffic was moderately light since I was late for work. I was going about 5mph faster than traffic in the left lane with nobody ahead of or behind me. I saw a cruiser pull into traffic about a half mile ahead of me so I jabbed the brakes real quick to match the speed of traffic. I pulled in with the rest of the cars and just cruised for a while… my exit was in a mile or 2 anyways. as I cruised by the cop, I looked down… the speed of traffic was 80mph. in a 55mph zone. and the cop was just plodding along looking bored. I consciously know that 80 in a 55 is nothing to be calm about, but the rest of the drivers didn’t seem to care either. damn.

    you only get pulled over in that instance for a secondary offence.
    1. Cutting people off, lane swimming.
    2. Expired tags / missing lights
    3. Being a minority ( 😉 this is boston after all )
