Yeah it’s crazy how empty the roads are here over in jersey. People average about 80-90mph on the turnpike and I’ve only seen 2 people pulled over since the start of quarantine.

been taking advantage of the roads every day that I can 😍😍

I don't know....:dunno:
I originally bought these stickers on Amazon and put them next to each exhaust tip because people kept tailgating me.... :cry: But then I noticed this unbelievable power boost, nobody can keep up even if they try..... Recommended.

Update: yesterday I witnessed two BMW flyby incident on the highway. First was an older gen black M5 (mid 2005-2007?) nearly come to a stop ON THE HWY then floor it and passed me (going about 75) easily triple digits. I was expecting to see a bad wreck ahead but thankfully none occurred.
The second was a white M4 that came outta no where and I suspect was trying to bait me into running with it. I came upon a cluster of cars and I stepped on it to pass thru on left lane. Was doing maybe 78-80 but backed off quickly after I passed and changed outta the passing lane when I hear and see the M4 come from my right hauling ass. Shockingly I see it’s turn signal and jackhole gets in my lane and sorta break checks me. Then speeds off again. Eff that. I was just trying to get to work.

Be safe out there y’all.

Not sure how it is elsewhere in the states, but over here in Nj traffic is picking up at least in my area. Glad that I enjoyed the completely empty highways while I could.. probably no other time in my life where nyc freeways and the Nj turnpike are almost empty on a sunny day.

The cops around here could make their monthly quota in one day lately. People are insane and I'm surprised some people haven't gotten shot with how stupid some people are driving.

Someone ran a red light well after it turned red. They almost hit two cars, but luckily the two cars saw them coming and stopped.

Yeah, with all the alleged insanity and how dangerous it is out there, I'm getting money back from my auto insurance, because they made so much extra money on the huge drop of the number of claims.

There is no doubt the risk of losing my life or limb or property by driving every day, which normally is substantial, (much higher than from all infectious diseases taken together) is the lowest now. It was newer lower in my life.
