  • hypermiling & going the speed limit

    When I was researching hypermiling, the consensus was that it's riskiest to drive the speed limit; cops always assume someone is drunk if they aren't going at least a couple mph over, and they'll drive up next to the speed limit driver, to see if they are drunk.

    Lol, is that true? Is driving the speed limit really that suspicious?

    It's the law..........................
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      Cops don't "always assume" ANYTHING. We also don't drive up next to someone "to see if they are drunk". We observe their driving.

      I personally don't have an issue with people going a couple of mph over the speed limit..but someone actually following the law and going the speed limit is not suspicious -- especially with a cop car trailing them. Now, someone going significantly below the speed limit for no apparent reason is going to get my attention.

        Preposterous. The consensus among WHOM?

        You're listening to people who have no idea what they're talking about.
        You can trust just about every officer you work with to risk their life to save yours, but don't ever leave your lunch in the breakroom refrigerator.

          Among hypermiling drunks, apparently.

          I wonder if they have their own forum?

            lol, that's what I thought! I had always driven the speed limit before I read that, then I got concerned- though I'd *never* experienced anything like that before.

            They were saying that in defense of their road rage causing 'pulse & glide'. Wow. Drive behind someone like that, it'll make ya homicidal in about 20 seconds.

                Yes, they will shut off the engine and coast down hills and other asinine driving habits.
