DarthKermit:jarledb: But what is this thing about increasing your speed when you get to a passing lane here in NZ? People will be cruising at 90 Km/h on the single lane and when they get to a passing lane stretch they are suddenly increasing their speed well over 100 Km/h.
I prefer to slow down to 90 k or so to allow people who want to pass the opportunity to do so.
Even if you do exactly 100kmh, drivers here have a gene that forces them to overtake you (breaking the speed limit to do so). They are utterly unable to follow a car at the legal limit here on an empty road - they must always overtake and be in front, even if they then sit 3 car lengths in front doing the same 100 kmh speed.
