Re: Driving too slow in a 50 km/h zone

But when you come across someone who slows down to an speedo-indicated 50kph for every single limit, meaning they're driving perhaps 10kph slower than everybody else who understands about built-on speedo error, and then speeds up between villages so making overtaking difficult, it can be a right PITA.

Um, *everyone* is supposed to slow down to the speed limit and unless you know there's a speedo under-read you shouldn't be relying on one. No-one else should be going above 50kmh so 10kmh slower would be a 20% under-read. Would you also rather they didn't speed up between 50 limits? Sometimes probably yes but if there's a line of traffic that would be worse.

I know what you mean but sometimes you just have to relax a bit. These people simply reduce your enjoyment of the drive. The actual time delay is usually insignificant. If you perform a dangerous over-take out of frustration then that's entirely on you.
