I wish it was going a little bit slower so all folks who haven't been here could see the beautiful maintenance of our roadsides...and the flowers, and the interesting placement of the bushes and the lack of weeds and trash and the tall oaks with the moss and the lovely well kept homes.

It is so beautiful here. John has such good taste. I always enjoy when he shows pictures of inside his home too.

If other cars were obeying the speed limit of 35 mph you had to be speeding.

Regarding the first quote, just yesterday that's exactly what I did. I couldn't get into the correct lane to exit the roundabout so I went around a second time. Big deal, I'm retired.

Barefoot, I think the snowbirds are gone, for the most part, but I'm noticing a lot more out of town plates than ever before and also noticing a lot more mistakes happening in the roundabouts in the past 2 days. What's up with that? Who can we blame now?

SNOWBIRDS are not the problem.... Old people are. That should include just about everyone in TV. Be careful of the work trucks too!

Default Roundabouts

My wife doesn't call them roundabouts. She refers to them as
"CIRCLES OF DEATH "

I am still trying to think of WHY someone would have a dashboard video camera.

Hey John, Love the video - too short. I beg to ask, why you were in the left lane wizzing by at speeds that exceeded 35 mph. Let me give you the benefit of a little court room observations (I was a Bailiff). When you think you have seen and heard it all; you haven't. Typically, when a defendant pleads not guilty, the Officer that wrote the ticket receives a subpena to provide video where possible, written notes, and sworn under oath statements. Most often left lane drivers receive the most citations for speeding, following too closely, failure to provide lane change signaling.

This does not exempt the right lane drivers. The right lane drivers may decide to exceed the speed limit because they yield the road to no man and refuse to allow a left lane (passing lane) driver to merge back into thru traffic. Speeding tickets for right lane greed won't impress a judge. Most of the time, the judge will show some mercy for first time offenders just because they needed to have their day in court. This is not network TV. It is reality with laws that are consistent for all but not viewed that way by the masses. Okay, Okay. enough said. Go safely and stay out of the left lane unless you are passing slower than speed limit traffic or making a left turn and don't forget to use turn signal (check to see if they are even functioning).

uh, the work trucks criss crossing lanes with trailers swinging aren't being driven, for the most part, by seniors...everyone is a danger to you on the road...soooo, if you're out tonight, on your bike, wear white...haven't I heard that somewhere?

Because they can. Others just don't have an understanding or appreciation of technology.

you are violating copyright laws by using songs,, unless you have paid BMI or ASCAP I would be take that down,(or just remove the music),, is cute,,but you cant do that,, many do,, at times YOUTUBE will remove it if they get a notice,, and they do patrol it,, good luck,, if they catch you they will give you 2 or 3 chances,, then they get a bit in a hissy,, do not mean to pee on your cherrios,, just letting you know

Great video.
off topic
How do you embed a video in a post not just a link? Gmail does that automatically. I see others do it on TOTV. I'm hoping they answer.
