An Observation

Whether on residential roads or highways, most people go exactly the speed limit. Precisely. If the sign says the speed limit is 60, they go 60.

It's quite a switch from DC. In DC if you go at the speed limit, you're going too slow. Driving at anywhere between 5 and 20 mph over the limit is normal on highways - residential roads, people are a little more conservative. Cops, most of the time, won't pull you over unless you're driving like a loon or going over that 20 barrier.

For the first few days I lived here, I kept wondering if there was an accident up ahead or something. Why the hell were we going so slow? I don't know if the fines are higher here or what. Maybe it's just different society's norms.
