Burning your money?

No doubt I did a bit of weaving but rarely did I speed. For 2 decades, I drove while intoxicated.

My theory was to drive as normally as possible so a cop would not pull me over. In fact, I drove as if a cop were right behind me. And it worked. My driving record has always been clean. (almost, but that's for another post)

For the last 15 years I just didn't drink and drive. Maybe I matured. More likely, it's because I moved within 2 blocks of the bars I drank at.

These days, I still drive like the proverbial "little old lady." I try not to exceed the speed limit. I stop at red lights and stop signs, etc.. etc... etc...

Now I find this has another positive effect. My small, 4 cyl. standard transmission Toyota gets pretty good gasoline mileage. But whether I have a small car with good mileage or a big SUV that gets 10 mpg, by driving within the speed limits and not gunning the engine, I save money on high-priced gasoline. We all know and see people who race to get to the next red light. Many continue to drive 70mph or 80mph on the freeway, where the speed limit is 55mph. I see it all the time.

I can't help but wonder if these are the people who are complaining about rising gas prices. Whatever I may drive, there are ways to conserve fuel. If I choose to ignore proper driving methods, I don't think I can be a complainer.

And the cops leave me alone.

I've been driving slower too in effort to squeeze every drop out of my gas dollars. As others were flying by me yesterday, I wondered if there would come a general tendency to drive more conservatively. One thing's for sure, I've seen less Hummers around town.

I've been behaving myself behind the wheel too. I think it has something to do with the fact that I'm usually ferrying children and old folk around. Your right though, it definitely has the effect of keeping gas consumption down. And I've noticed the same thing that Jerkj has noticed...fewer of the really big guzzlers on the road.
