    Speeding tolerances on US-50 in Colorado?

    Thanks for posting, that gives me some peace of mind. I'm thinking Cruise control to 64 in the 55 zones(Unless it's just 55 for a little while, then ~60) and 65-72 in the 65 zones, which I can live with. Do you know if there is any wiggle room on the Interstate?

    Speeding tolerances on US-50 in Colorado?

    Hello! I'll be driving from Salt Lake City UT to Canon City CO, and wanted to pick your brains about how strict they are about speeding. The last time I drove the route I remember lots of under-posted feeling 55mph zones that were driving me a bit bonkers since I wasn't sure how strictly...

    RD Usage in Florida

    Hmmm, apparently it is forbidden to attach anything to the windshield with a couple of specific exemptions for things like Tint-strips and toll transponders. http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0300-0399/0316/Sections/0316.2952.html I highly doubt they...

    Towing a trailer w/ small sedan(Honda Civic).

    Thanks for the post, I'm unsure what to do. Don't want to just hear what I want to hear. I see the Austrailian tow rating and say "wtf?" but it's also possible the suspension/brakes/other-items are lesser on my North-America model since they knew they didn't need a tow rating for it. And not...

    I do appreciate you taking the time. Causing thousands of dollars in wear and ruining my lovely car in order to save a few hundred on a box truck rental would be mighty stupid if that is indeed the reality.

    Towing a trailer w/ small sedan(Honda Civic).

    Perhaps I am bringing the wrong tool for the job. 1,700+ lbs(Approx weight of two jetskis before extras from 2 seconds of googling) =/= occasional 1,200lbs but still they don't sound too too far apart. Plus a Malibu would weight ~300lbs or so more. Thx for your input. 1564852061 @Deacon If you...

    Towing a trailer w/ small sedan(Honda Civic).

    Of course, GVWR for my car is 3,737, curb weight is 2,742lbs, 12.4gal of fuel is 105lbs, leaves 890lbs. Always seems low on cars like mine, like there isn't even a point to making the vehicle as large as it is since it would be so easy to overload it. Having no tow rating is sketch, both legally...

    Towing a trailer w/ small sedan(Honda Civic).

    Normally I do like to heed the owners manual, since the designers of the car wrote it, but I question if my car is less capable than say the Australian model, which greenlights 165lbs tounge weight, and 1,100lbs towing weight w/o trailer brakes(For the "VTi" model w/ 1.8L Naturally aspirated...

    Towing a trailer w/ small sedan(Honda Civic).

    Hello all: I'm wanting to get a tow-hitch installed on my 2017 Honda Civix LX, (2.0L NA engine, 6 speed manual transmission). Ideally I'd like to tow 1,200 maybe 1,500 occasionally around town and in two years tow whatever I safely can when I move. Honda claims 158 HP @ 6500rpm(Which sounds...

    Should I Run Viofo A119 All the Time

    Small hi-jack, but I have that same camera and was considering trying to use this battery that I own https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ME3ZH7C/?tag=rdf0cd-20 I can't shake the paranoia that the battery will explode or something from the insane heat inside a car, or that the camera will fail...

    They went ahead and reduced it to a free warning, nice!

    $53.00 Seattle, WA Parking Ticket - Pay/Contest/Ignore?

    It's tempting, in-fact I might get Oregon plates soon anyway, but I just don't want some non-sense to haunt me over $53.00.

    Sent off my written statement for the mitigation hearing, hope they reduce it!

    That's good to hear. Unlike the non-sense speed limits I'm willing to accept Parking enforcement as a necessary evil, I'm sure they're not complaining about the revenue but the tickets at least serve a purpose.
