How can you go the posted speed minimum if there are cars ahead of you parked or going slower caused by the congestion (traffic jam) you are trying to eliminate? Have a cop walk down the line handing out tickets? Only way to move traffic at maximum speed is more lanes (maybe) or less cars. You going home did more to help than increasing the minimum speed limit.

Obviously you have not been to LA, I can drive with them people, they get in their car to go somewhere, not to park on the hiway.

But when they have a wreck down there, they have a wreck and everything stops, but at least there is a reason to be stopped, the others on the other side of the freeway are still moving, around here both sides come to a stop, sometimes because of a person with a flat, both freaking sides of the hiway because of a car with a flat on one side.

I am self employed, I also have quite a few customers that came from southern CA amoung other places, I have actually heard one of them say that they moved from there because they were scared to drive down there, so it seems they came here to slow everyone down.

I say if someone is not doing the speed limit and a lot of cars/trucks/semi trucks are having to pass them, and especially so if they have to pass them on the right, give them a ticket, once they get 3 tickets, take their licence.

I guess that every time I have went down there or was driving thru, it has been either in the winter or a winter holiday like Thanksgiving, most of the time I was driving was during the late evening from places like Sylmar to San Bernardino or from San Bernardino to Lake Elsinore, or in the morning going from the motel to the flying site which is not on the freeway, we also have drove to Torrey Pines from San Bernardino and back, I can only remember once not driving fast, and that was when I was trying to get out of LA going north during rush hour(early evening), but they were still moving, just not freeway speeds.

Around here they just stop on the freeway, most the time I cannot even figure out why, but I am not looking around everywhere either, I am concentrating on driving my car instead of other things.

The meeting to today was a huge success, but not much of a meeting, more a Datsun hangout. Definitely a good time.

I agree, a good meet up, not really a DatsunsNW meeting.

Thank you Steve, for hosting this.

Agree with that. Maybe just shoot them instead.

Love the new location and day. Wednesday nights just didn't work for me. Saturday may compete some with kids sports, but it's much more manageable - and Steven is a great host.

I just wanted to thank everyone who came to the meet and greet this last Sat. we had a great turn out at our new venue. There was a lot of new faces and cars and glad to see Datsloco and North west Datsuns members at our meet! Everyone really seemed to like the building and new date. Thx to bananahamuck for posting pics.

 

Our next meeting will be on March 19th from 9 to noon. Hope to see more at our next meet!

Since Ted has to be "on call" this weekend we  are going to have to skip this month..  My son should be changed over to weekdays at his work by your next meeting so finding/having a travel buddy shouldn't be a problem.

 

I haven't talked to Scalp-em so don't know if any Oly guys are showing but he might.

Looks like good weather is here so I'm heading out this Sat. morning to cars and coffee in Wilsonville 8am to 11am and then Red Door Meet Sun night in Portland 6pm to when we head out. There's a few guy meeting up at both but would like to see some more Datsuns out there, sounds like a good time.
