The Video is All of Us When it Comes to Texas Speed Limits
I found this video scrolling on my social feed and it is so relatable when it comes to Texas Speed limits. I mean for many Texans, the speed limit is a mere suggestion. I mean, how many times have you been going 80 on the Freeway in Houston and someone passes you like you are standing still? The toll roads with a speed limit of 85? I feel if you are not going 100 MPH, you are not driving fast enough. SEE THE VIDEO BELOW.
However, it's the final comment about not speeding through small towns that really hit home. I mean, my dad used to tell me, 'you NEVER speed through Kendelton." Anyone else? I also do not dare speed through Cuero, I have gotten multiple speeding tickets in that town.
While we are talking about traffic in Texas, let's take a look for comedic look at one social media post about Houston's traffic. Whether it is the neverending construction, the endless traffic jams, or extreme speeders. Houston traffic makes many people nervous. One social media post circulating made a comedic list about how to drive in Houston, which is so relatable. You can see the full post below. The original post was published by Anthony Jay Ray.
HOW TO DRIVE IN HOUSTON:
- RUSH HOUR: The morning rush hour is from 5:00 am to noon. The evening rush hour is from noon to 7:00 pm. Friday's rush hour starts on Thursday morning.WHAT SPEED LIMIT? The minimum acceptable speed on I-45 is 80 mph. On 99 and 59, your speed is expected to at least match the highway number. Anything less is considered 'Wussy'.
- HOUSTON HAS ITS OWN TRAFFIC RULES:. Houston has its own version of traffic rules. For example, Ferraris and Lamborghinis owned by sports stars go first at a four-way stop. Cars/trucks with the loudest muffler go second. The trucks with the biggest tires go third. The HOV lanes are really designed just for the slow Louisianans passing through who are used to hogging the left lane everywhere.NEVER HONK: Never honk at anyone. Ever. Seriously. It's another offense that can get you shot.
- NEVERENDING CONSTRUCTION: Road construction is permanent and continuous. Detour barrels are moved around for your entertainment pleasure during the middle of the night to make the next day's driving a bit more exciting.ALWAYS BE ALERT: Watch carefully for road hazards such as drunks, ladders, possums, skunks, dogs, barrels, cones, furniture, cats, mattresses, shredded tires, squirrels, rabbits, and crows.MOST IMPORTANT: If you get LOST, Look for I-45 ... Then you are somewhere in Houston.
