Take Your Time

Traveling north on 95 today with it raining I was passed by numerous various types of RVs, TT,s 5th wheels and both large and small MHs, both towing and not. I had my cruise set at 63 mph. Many were exceeding the 70mph speed limit. What is the rush, your on vacation! Being a retired first responder, I have witnessed what happens when a tire is blown, or brakes are suddenly applied while towing a trailer. If either of these catastrophes happens your in trouble at any speed. But your chances of recovery increase with a reduced speed. I guess these high dollar 460 HP turbo diesel drivers think that they own the road and think “it ain’t going to happen to me”. Guess what it will!
