Passed by speeding cars on Hwy 9 descent
So I was easily doing 5 over the speed limit most of the descent and at the point where it was straight probably faster, some pickup passes me over the double yellow, and I'm thinking wow, he's probably double the speed limit there. And then some dude in a Subaru goes by with passenger window down yelling something in an unfriendly tone, like I was doing something wrong. I couldn't even tell what he said over the wind noise, but 5 minutes later they were still in my sights until we passed Saratoga Springs and it started to flatten out and I lost them.
It's discouraging that so few people on the road know the laws, especially for someone who would be coming down Hwy 9 at 7am on a Saturday. Makes me glad I can use the MUP's when I commute to work.
