Just for your consideration - I used to drive a busted ass 4cyl sedan secondhand from my parents. I could put the pedal into the floor and 55 was about the best I'd be doing by the end of that on ramp...

You know I'm talking about forest green minivans and jeep compasses.

The car is not the problem. I believe @M346 is referring to drivers who move into the left lane prior to achieving the requisite speed.

If you stay in the right lane, the only problem would be if there are already cars in both lanes and you force the ones in the right lane in front of those in the left. You can try to minimize this case by staying on the shoulder or reducing your already low acceleration to allow the slightly faster drivers in the right lane to pass you. Sometimes, though, it's just tough noogies and there's nothing you can do about the inordinate timing of it all.

There are two reasons someone on the road isnt doing the speed limit.

  1. Their vehicle wont safely do the speed limit in which case it is an unroadworthy vehicle and probably not legal.

  2. The driver doesnt feel safe enough to do the speed limit and is therefore... an unroadworthy driver.

Which one is more dangerous?

Using the zipper technique helps a lot!
