    One of the plus’s of CA is CHP usually gives a generous speed cushion. In a 65, 75 is pretty safe. Not to say lower speed tickets don’t happen, but when my R3 goes off I drop to about 73 and feel good about it. That General mood carries over to every day driving. People aren’t playing games with each other trying to create rabbits, etc... They just drive. With that being said, heavy traffic commute driving brings out the worst. People start doing dirty moves to get 2 cars up.

    On the other hand, Chicago definitely lives up to it's reputation of aggressive drivers.
