RE: Speed limits

I have to agree. this discussion is silly, bordering on stupid. bumpy Since when is a discussion on safe following distance silly ? There are many silly things discussed on this forum, but safety isn't one of them. Just because people have a differing opinion on what is safe makes it silly ? I was referring to the quibbling about 3 or 4 seconds, of F-150 PU or VW bug, that debate was silly bordering on stupid. bumpy

RE: Speed limits

They changed the wording from "at least one car length per every 10mph" to "at least three seconds" because it is easier to figure out. I don't think that going down the road counting one thousand one, one thousand two, etc. and restart when another car pulls in front of you is easier than to estimate a car length behind a vehicle. in any event, there will not be any precision into any method is used to determine distance. bumpy Many people have difficulty estimating distances. And what "is" a car length? Is it a vw bug or a pickup or a sedan or a station wagon? Counting to three seconds takes those arguments out of the equation. is that count to three, or one onethousand, two two thousand, etc.? what cadence do you use? when that car length was used many years ago I would assume that it was for a standard sized vehicle so it would probably equate to 1.273 of today's vehicle length. bumpy :S You're just being silly now. Is that 1.273 of a fiat or a Suburban? I have to agree. this discussion is silly, bordering on stupid. bumpy

RE: Speed limits

My Mom wouldn't let us drive home after getting our permits or licenses. Her observations showed a lot of kids getting into accidents on those two days - so she removed them from the equation. I can certainly agree on not letting a kid drive solo. I remember some states restricting driving with two young drivers. If one kid has an IQ of 100 and another gets in with an IQ of 100 the combined IQ would total out to about 60. bumpy

RE: Speed limits

I haven't checked back to see if any body has mentioned it yet, but if every one dropped back the "recommended" spacing, 1 car length per 10 mph or whatever, you would end up with the traffic moving backwards as new cars got into the mix. bumpy

RE: Speed limits

When I took Driver Ed if any of the instructors caught you driving to Driver Ed, you automatically failed and had to wait a year to take it again. Many of us grew up on farms and had been driving big equipment and trucks for years before we were old enough to get a license. reminds me of when I went to the court house to take my test. I drove there on my learner's permit and my mom was with me. she went shopping, I went in the court house. when the officer giving me the test and I went out to the car he was surprised no body was with me. he did accept the fact that my mom had been with me and went shopping but I don't think I totally convinced him. :) bumpy

RE: Rexhall aerbus vs Fleetwood pace arrow

the fleetwood probably has a rubber roof. how about the rexhall? bumpyMy TPO "rubber" roof has been flawless for the last 19 years. That should not be a consideration. you probably had good luck because a TPO roof is not a rubber roof. bumpy

RE: Speed limits

If you don't believe speed kills just look at the pileups with 40-50 cars. Those who are driving the limit are not the problem the speeder is the problem. IIRC most of those situations were caused by ice/fog/or some other "outlier". not necessarily breaking the speed limit. bumpy

RE: Speed limits

One of the main issues with using Tesla self driving is that it won't let me keep up with traffic in many places. I can't blame manufacturers for not allowing people to use their programs to break the law since they could be held liable. I can set my cruise control in my vehicles at any speed I desire, not limited to speed limit. what makes me mad is that I can not adjust the gps to allow a couple of MPH over the limit before going to red. bumpy

RE: 2 way radio in RV????

I don’t know that any real number of people are switching to GMRS. You probably have a better chance at reaching someone on Facebook or Instagram with your cell phone than on any radio. when approaching a big city, exactly how do I contact oncoming traffic/truckers on facebook to determine best way thru, north/south or straight thru? bumpy
