The other day, both going to work and coming home, traffic was thick but not heavy. It was also moving more slowly than usual.
Apparently it was “Drive 5 MPH under the limit day” and no one had told me.
As I am, during this season of Lent, always on the lookout for a blog topic, I considered being left out of such a national event as “Drive 5 MPH under the limit Day.”
Now: I admit I have issues with driving and traffic. During Lent a few years ago, my main focus was to improve my attitude while driving. I’ve come a long way.
I’ve come so far that this year, on National “Drive 5 MPH under the limit Day” I didn’t get mad.
I didn’t get even.
I realized that the posted speed limit is not a requirement. One is not required to drive 50, for example, just because the speed limit is 50.
In that case, 50 is the upper limit. Hence the word, “limit.”
It just so happens that I am almost always in enough hurry to get to wherever I am going next that I push the limit.
Yes, I admit right here on the internet that I regularly drive a little above the speed limit.
Some people think limits are made to be pushed. I tend to be one of those people.
How about you?
