A post from Toms River, NJ.
This morning I flew from Detroit to Newark. This afternoon I drove a rental car from Newark to Toms River.
The learning continues. Today I learned that drivers on the freeways of New Jersey are every bit as aggressive and generally as "crazy" as those in Southern California.
In fact, from what I've seen on the freeways of America in the past few months, it seems that speed limits are definitely "optional" across the country.
I'd go as far as to suggest that you put yourself at risk by driving at or below the posted speed limit -- as the flow of traffic passes by at a relative velocity of 20 or 30 mile per hour.
