the speed changed from 70 to 45 to 35 in about 1/2 mile or less and I was late for work. Ticket was only 41 in a 35, good radar detector and good brakes!

Reminds me of Jonestown or Cedar Park

close, this was on the east side of Georgetown right at Southwestern university.

one of the other tickets was in Guthrie Texas, little hole in the wall town in NW TX where it drops from 70, 55, 45, 35 about 100 yards apart, I missed the last one (35) watching a sheriffs deputy do a U-turn about a 1/4 mile up the road and my radar detector went full bore and he turned his lights on before getting back to me. I was at 46 and figured the lights were for someone else until he did a U-turn again right behind me. He was nice enough but still gave me a ticket

Sometimes the right lane is so rough (on the concrete roads)and in disrepair from the heavy truck traffic that folks will drive in the left lane just to keep from repairing their cars, and keep the fillings in their teeth.

Any of the interstates I have been are like that, and in any state west of Missouri. The large trucks take their toll on the pavement. Not so bad on asphalt, but concrete is the worst. Yes, I'm talking about Texas also.

Right lanes are not that bad, I have to use them frequently at high speed to pass the grandmas slow poking in the fast lane.

Try interstate 76 on the north side of Keenesburg to the state line. That's just one of many in the western states. I hardly ever see anybody doing less than 5 over the limit in the left lane, @ 80 mph, that hardly qualifies anyone as a "grandma".

V1, send in for updates, no false alarms. Only ticket in in the past 12 years has been in a damn rental car.

Someone previously posted, 77-78 on interstate and I agree and practice that, I do. TX is 75 on most open interstates, set it on 82-84 - around 2100 rpm in the Yukon.

I agree the fear of drunks or people on their phones or persons applying Make-Up in the mirror and driving!
