Hi Omar, Katie, Matteo, I share Omar's frustration with slow drivers who block traffic behind them. Often it seems they are older people who may have vision problems, be lost, or have other issues. I personally try to drive at the speed limit and sometimes above when traffic is flowing fast as it often does on our local thoroughfares. When I am in a residential neighborhood I try to be aware that a child or pet may dart into the street and adjust my speed accordingly. Oftentimes pedestrians stroll across a busy street without a glance, assuming that vehicles will yield for them (sometimes with tragic results). I think it all comes down to patience and consideration for those who share the roads with us, allowing faster traffic to pass, not crowding people who are trying to watch for street or exit signs.
