    What about Oklahoma State University and Oregon State University--all OSU's.

    As a Redskin I thought it was to differentiate itself from Ohio University, which is a "state"
    university as well.

    > they do not know for a fact if that officer is on a call of a nature that requires a fast emergency response, that calls for no lights or sirens unless absolutely necessary or unavoidable.

    Since it was a large SUV and doesn't have lights and siren and it was on I75 where the State Highway Patrol takes care of things (somewhat), I doubt he was on an emergency run. We were 1 miles south of the rest area so if the driver had a "call of nature" they just missed their chance.

    >People who make blanket statements such as this one, due a lot of diservice to a lot of law enforcement people who don't deserve that kind of abuse

    I'm not sure which statement you're calling "blanket." The FOP tags on the license plates should be illegal; they are only license for misuse and avoiding following the laws which apply to everyone in our state unless they're on an emergency call, and for that they have lights and sirens.

    I've been tailgated, passed, cut off, in the last years by too many vehicles with those convenient FOP tags, to give your criticism a consideration. Also my wife has a friend whose husband is a policeman. The wife used her "get out of jail free" card 3 times in 6 weeks when she was stopped--speeding X2 and illegal left turn out of a business driveway X1 (left turn across several lanes of traffic, controlled by warning sign in business driveway showing no left turns).

    >People who make blanket statements such as this one, due a lot of diservice to a lot of law enforcement people who don't deserve that kind of abuse

    I expect them to follow the laws in the same way I expect elected people in Columbus and DC to follow the laws. I know I'm expecting a lot from the elected folk, but for policemen it's what they agree to as part of their oath.

    It's real.

    I can't believe the moniker Isellhondas can't be retrieved and set up.

    But to keep Isell posting, I suggest logging in after creating a new name
    such as Isoldhondas or IsellhondasB4.

    Was in Pittsburgh

    But saw one of the self-driving Uber vehicles go by. It was very close to the stadium and people and vehicles were going in every direction, so I'm not certain if the person behind the wheel was in "manual" mode or not, but given how many people were dashing across the streets in all directions, I suspect they were.

    You are forgetting that if speeders had their way you could cram 3,000 cars per hour in that one fast lane as long as people didn't get in the way.

    It also works when you look at the time-use of the roadway. If everyone shortens their commute by 20% by speeding, everyone will notice the roadways are 20% more empty 20% more of the time. :smile:
    Don't think that's the way it works on the I75 / I70 commute times here. I think we will have to just disagree agreeably. LOL
