Wow....

In Texas (or at least North Texas), there is no minimum speed limit. However, I do believe one can get a ticket for reckless driving if going THAT slow.

A few years ago I was driving from a small unnamed town in North Texas (near the OK border) to Arlington which required me to take I35W through Fort Worth. At the time my car had a problem (don't remember now what it was) that would cause it to overheat and the engine shut down if I went over 55 mph (I got rid of it soon afterward since I couldn't afford to get it fixed). No one drives that slow through Fort Worth (unless an accident has the highway down to stop and go traffic). Although I stayed in the right lane, there were still people still people honking at me and flipping me off (not all Texans follow the state motto...lol). Of course, I drove through the really heavy traffic areas with my hazard lights on (so it was obvious something was wrong with my car) unless I had to switch lanes or make a turn.

I'm sure if I had gotten pulled over, the officer would have been understanding, but it was hell driving so far being forced to go so slow. If my car had been doing it before the trip I wouldn't have made it, but the problem only started halfway through. Oh well. I do kinda miss the car though...it was my first even though it was a piece of crap.
