Results, Experiment #3: Obey The Speed Limit


For seven days I tried to only drive the speed limit, and no faster.  Would my stress level behind the wheel be reduced?  Would I enjoy driving?

The Results

Uuuuuuuuuuuggggghhhhhh, the speed limit is sooooooo sloooooooow.

The speed limit is so slow!  Driving the speed limit was hard.  Admittedly, a lot of the time it isn’t possible to drive the speed I want because there is so much congestion on the roads of San Diego.  However, when the road is clear, I have to say that the speed limit is set atrociously low.

By driving the speed limit, I didn’t notice that my drive was more relaxed.  I didn’t notice that I enjoyed driving more.  I didn’t notice I was less frustrated with other drivers on the road.

So, I have decided the best thing is to drive the speed I think is most safe and most appropriate for the given situation.

  1. You were probably the ONLY person in the entire state of California driving the speed limit that week! I bet that was freaky.
