    Not entirely untrue, but one reason old folks drive slow is because it's not only the safest way but also the most cost-effective. It took me over 20 years to realize that the most leisurely drive cost less in wasted time than the money it costs to upkeep in addition to fuel. We're talking tires lasting twice as long, brake pads that don't need changing but maybe every 100,000 miles and everything else lasts a lot longer, too.

    My reflexes may appear slower, but it's because with age it hurts to move and the experience of a lifetime also enables older folks to get twice the stuff done with about half the motions, so where the young'uns are always rushing around trying to get things done, the old guy hardly looks like he's moving but better watch out because before you blink twice, he's done.

    A prime example is everybody always rushing from traffic light to traffic light, the thousand-year old sickness of hurry-up-and-wait and then hurry up so we can wait again infects folks to such extent it takes an effort to get away from the mindset itself... And to take it slow and nice and easy and time the lights so one hardly ever has to stop... It's one of those old trucks lumbering down the road at 20-30mph in a 45mph zone and everybody flies past the guy all irritated at his slowness, but every single traffic light here comes that old truck again chug-a-chug-a-chug-a and chit lol.
    That's all I'm saying but you're not wrong either, just another view point.

    Yes Sir, around here I doubt you could save six minutes a day driving punch it and crunch it, but that is the way driving is done.
