Ok ... I read this earlier .... Not sure I recall the exact wording but I'll give it a try

An old man and his wife sit at a table at Maccas (for our American friends, that's McDonalds ..Americas greatest export)
The man pull out of his paper bag one burger, one small fries and two napkins. He places one napkin flat in front of himself, and the other in front of his wife.
He cuts the burger in half and places one half on his napkin. He then places the other haldf on his wifes napkin
A young man sitting at the next table watching was shocked to see this, and taking pity on them offers to buy them another meal.
The wife replies, 'no thank you dear, we share everything'
The old man proceeds to take the fries out of the bag, and counts them out sharing them equally with his wife.
The wife starts to eat her burger and her husband sits there watching her.
The young man sitting next to them still can't believe it and thinking the old man is saving his half to give to his wife, offers once again to buy them another meal.
The old man replies, 'No thank you sir, we share everything.'
'But then why aren't you eating?' asks the young man
'Because I'm waiting for the teeth' replies the old man

It is a real phenomenon tho, I encounter it driving to/from Melbourne. I am behinf a car doing 10-15kph less than the road limit. I see a sign about a passing lane near—and the fuckhead in front of me speeds up to the road limit, preventing me from legally overtaking . I think “Yeah, play your stupid game, but I have 500+Km to go before reaching home!” These guys are policing my use of the road!

The road traffic laws state you must do the road limit to ensure smooth flow of traffic.

Funny. Where I live the speed limit is 55 mph on a two lane highway (one lane in each direction). But if you go 55 mph, your going to be passed all day long.

Been there, done that too......
.......but as you know the speed limit only pertains to the maximum speed you can legally drive at.

There are no 'stated' minimum speed limits, but if you are driving 'unreasonably' slower that the stated limit (top speed) you can be booked......this is at the complete discretion of the officer booking a driver he/she deems to be driving 'unreasonably' slow.

That said......My suggestion would be unless you are willing to take the chance of speeding up for passing, best to sit back, & deal with it until you can legally pass.


As for me personally,
I'd pass the F%$@*&G asshole, & take the chance of not getting booked for speeding. Being I have lived here in Victoria/Australia for the better part of 30 years, & to me it's a safe bet I won't catch a fine......cops are rare as hens teeth on the roads.......& I've never been booked for speeding to pass.

No, the law in Australia is that you drive at the speed limit of that road, unless unable (trucks are speed limited, etc.) That was part of the last release of revisions to the Road Rules a few years ago.

Really??? .....
.... Can you cite this particular new revision to the Road Rules.....the actual Law itself........where I can read it & research it.........& where it specifically states that it is illegal to drive slower than the Posted Speed Limit..........I've never seen it before, & no one I've spoken to at Vic Roads is aware of such a speed law either???? Thanks

Hmmm

Is it illegal to drive too slow in Australia?


While it's not illegal to drive under the speed limit, driving abnormally slow without reason could see you hit with a fine. ... Simply driving a bit slower than the cars around you is fine, but according to the Australian Road Rules, a driver must not “unreasonably obstruct the path of another driver or a pedestrian”.28 Aug 2020

Can I be fined for driving too slowly? - samotor | The RAA ...

A Count is arrested for treason and brought before the King.

The King says: "Tell us who you accomplices are and i shall spare your life", to which the count replies 'I shall never tell! The secret will die with me".

"Right", says the King, "You're for the chop in the morning". And the Count is taken away to the dungeons.

At midnight, the King and his aide visit the dungeons and seek out the Count's cell. The King says, "With the rise of the sun, your head will be parted from your body unless you tell us who your accomplices are. Tell us and we will spare your life.' ... to which the count simply replied ... "I will never tell".

Just before dawn, the Count is led from him cell to the block. As he passes the King, the King says, "One last chance. Tell us who your accomplices are and you will live to see another day". The Count remains silent. Heis led to the block, laid down upon it. The axe is raised. The Count cries out:

"I'll tell! I'll tell!"... but it's too late. The axe falls and his head rolls from his body.


And the moral of the story is: Don't hatchet your Counts before they chicken.
