Description: When somebody tries to get on to the freeway at a "safe, slow speed."

What It Says: You don't think very much, and you think of the left pedal (you know there are only two in this driver's car) as the "safety pedal." Some people just think of slow as safe and fast as dangerous, no matter how many times you try to explain that the safest speed when merging into 65 mph traffic is 65 mph. For whatever reason, in our experience, this is rampant in Nashville, TN.¹

 

 

¹ I once got stuck behind a Ferrari 430 doing 31 in a 45 in Nashville. What the hell is the point of buying a Ferrari and driving it like a Matlock enthusiast?
