well believe it or not if you ever observe traffic a large amount of people drive around 55 mph , its just the few that drive crazy and make everything seem so fast speed, stay out of blind spots try to be seen, i personally would not ride something i couldnt pick up speed on because of how i ride, riding infront of traffic at a bit higher speed is not always dangerous, sometimes its the safest thing you can do,

So if I understand correctly, the police officer who writes the ticket does NOT need to be the same one who saw the traffic violation? He can just say "I saw so and so vehicle doing whatever" and any other officer can find you and write the ticket?

and since we're on the topic, what IS the ticket for that sort of thing?

To be honest, and flame me however much yall want...I look at it like a game. IF I get to my destination, I WIN! So it's like playing frogger, I go as fast as I feel safe, and I move from lane to lane and do whatever is necessary to make ME feel safe. So all of you who cage on 59 and see me blowing by you in the tripple digits and get ... sorry, but I feel safer getting away from all of you than trying to play bumper tag with vechicles 3-5 times my size.

I know someone who rode up the concrete retaining barrier in the HOV lane to aviod hitting someone...that's how the story goes and it was confirmed by others. He didn't go all the way up...but just kinda went up a little...around the car...then back down.

probably a passing in a no massing zone ticket. one time i passed an undercover cop and he turned on his lights afterwards, but by the time i saw him i was infront of another car. i didn't want to stop all the traffic on the HOV by pulling over so i just went to school like i had planned lol. guess his radio transmitter didn't have energizers in it. i miss taking the HOV now, i get outta class at 5:30pm and 59 traffic is killer.

Discuss.
Like you, I like to give myself more "outs". With the design of the HOV lanes in Houston, I steer clear of them. You get someone tailgating you, there's nowhere for you to go.
