Had to take a road trip by car last week. A Prevost MH towing a 7 series BMW 4 down passed me like I was parked. I sped up just to see how fast He was going. Twenty seven MPH over the speed limit! That right,102 miles per hour! If the driver of the Prevost reads this post, I want to give you two thumbs down!!!

I guess if you can afford the fine, the laws are not as important to respect.

On the bright side, he must have his towing rig set up well

"Only" 27 mph over?

If that happened in your home state of California, that's 47 mph over the towing speed limit of 55mph!

Why should his speed bother you.
Were you going the speed you wanted?
Did he do something dangerous to you?
Ease up enjoy your trip do not let what others do affect you enjoyment.

Sorta puzzled at the folks that evidently think the O.P. is concerned here about something that's "none of his business"-? I frankly think a call to the Highway Patrol was in order since the idea of sharing the road with a massive, grotesquely speeding "guided missile" is unappealing to me.

But maybe that's due to my Mother's having been passed by a speeding vehicle one fine morning, and in the next moment she saw the within-the-speed-limit pickup he next slammed into from behind (at "only" 80mph or so) go sailing straight across the freeway right in front of her. It tumbled fifty feet down a bank to land upside down on some railroad tracks. The driver of the struck vehicle and her 12 year old son were killed.

So, yeah- it IS our business!

Right on!! Some drivers do not care about their safety or any one else's safety.
