Thirty-Five…(35)…Folks Cannot Read The Numbers, 35…

All around my street in west Albuquerque there are streets that have 35 miles per hour speed limit. A few area’s are 30…There are a some folks who read and obey the 35….The others cannot read those numbers, or they  have a big, heavy foot, or they don’t care, or they are in a hurry and will obey the speed limit tomorrow,  or something else. And….if you do drive the speed limit you piss everyone off who happens to be behind you…Some will go around you by driving in the turn lane provided for left hand turns. I ask you, what’s up with that? Seldom do you see police pulling people over for exceeding the speed limit and also, “what’s up with that?”. I can understand why they don’t worry about breaking the law as it is seldom enforced. So why not go ahead and raise the limit to 45 or even to 50 as most of them are driving at 50 or faster, if the old retired folks will get out of the their way…..  These retirees are like me and  hate to break the law……Also, maybe the newer cars just can’t go that slow….Maybe I need to trade my old jalopy….Reckon?….. Oh yeah, and the 60 mph speed limit on Paso Del Norte is a joke. I drove a few miles per hour over the speed limit on it today and every one was passing me.  I passed two cars….They were broke down……It will be ok I guess, it was  a Monday.
