Slow Drivers

I always wondered if you can get a ticket for driving to slow?
Yesterday heading to kenora i ended up behind 2 vehicles going 30-40 under... so dangerous, almost worse than going to fast.
Its crazy the amount of messed up drivers there are on provincial highways.

Lot of old people putter along our highways have to watch out for them. Good thing they were not stopped with a mechanical break down, you would have hit them for sure. Most dangerous thing on our highways is people driving to fast for conditions , which could include not being able to stop within there line of sight.

If you have a hard time slowing down for a car, how do you deal with the moose going 89k under the limit?

I think it has to do with the fact that a moose is unaware of the fact that there are others trying to use the road that actually want to go speed limit, vs the people on the road, who know it's used by others, who also know how fast they are going compared to the average

I don't get mad at animals for being slow on roads, they don't know any better and there's no way to educate them, other drivers on the other hand, DO know better

I will admit there are a lot of older folks who drive "slower" than the normal flow of traffic, but, its not limited to that category specifically. i notice some of our "new Canadians" are - shall we say, unduly cautious to the point where they are very near to becoming a hazard. This ( to me ) seems to be particularly applicable to the female's.

Braptor will become famous soon enough
I saw a report a while back that determined that going 10 km under the average speed of traffic (not necessarily the same as the limit) was actually significantly more dangerous than 10 km over.

I think this is because going under-speed forces lots of people to make the decision/judgement whether to pass you, while going over, you only need to make one decision to slow down and not pass if it is dangerous.

(The results are just as true of one car going exactly the speed limit when all of traffic is going 10% over).

little bit off topic, but this I don't get about tow truck drivers that have flat deck tilt trucks. Once your vehicle is loaded and secured on your deck truck why do they keep the beacon amber flashing lights on once they are driving down the road.

I ran into this last night seen the truck coming towards me for a mile with a set of extremely bright beacons. Looked like a ambulance until I realized it was a deck truck.

They are telling you how important they are. Beacons on my trucks indicate load is wider than the trailer. IMO they should be running beacon unless their load is doing the same. Or they are parked and loading inunderstand that. But if they drive everywhere like that then people just think beacons are no biggie then they meet a 12' wide load at night and are surprised.
