I was driving along our local in-town freeway (Deerfoot Trail for any Calgarians) today. The speed limit on this road is 100 km/h (around 62 mph). The road conditions were bad - heavy rain and limited visibility. There was a construction area clearly posted, and the speed limit clearly posted in that area was reduced to 70 km/h (around 44 mph). Traffic violation fines in construction areas are doubled here. There were long stretches where there was no obvious work going on, but there were also areas with construction workers in them.
I reduced my speed to around 70, but none of the other traffic on the highway did, causing me to become a traffic hazard. I was not pleased with this situation at all (you could tell from the blue streak coming out of my mouth); it was dangerous for me, it was dangerous for the other drivers, and it was dangerous for the construction workers. But what do you do in a situation like that?
