Why do people think they need a vehicle that can go 0-60 in 5 or 6 seconds? Is there really a need for that? I remember when a vehicle had 0-60 times of under 7 seconds was a muscle car meant for the drag strip. Now if a vehicles 0-60 time is over 9 seconds is considered slow and dangerous to drive, why are people in such a hurry? Are we all compensating for something? Now I have enjoyed fast vehicles, but now every soccer mom demands a vehicle that will outrun a 60s muscle car, and they floor it all the time, from red light to red light.
In 30 years will the run of the mill suv have 0-60 times of 3 seconds and a vehicle that does it in 6 seconds be considered slow? Sounds crazy but that is what has happened in the past 30 years basically.
Gas, brake, gas, brake, gas gas gas, brake brake brake. Thats how people drive. Instead of anticipating traffic flow we must either be on the gas or on the brake. Coming up to a school bus stopped with its red lights on? Floor it till the last possible minute and then jam on the brakes just to wait, Darn kids are taking to long, dont they know im in a hurry!!
Everyone is in such a hurry to get no where, racing red light to red light. Everyone these days has such an alcoholic attitude (even if they don’t drink at all), its all about me and I care not a bit about anyone else, and I think its sad.
