In spite of the fact that I absolutely love to go fast in cars, and I have a car that makes the most lovely noises when you rev it hard, I don't speed on the road. I got 3 points on my license about 2 months after passing my test and, since then, I've stuck to the rules of the road pretty closely.

There's a 30mph road by us that is so long and boring to drive all the way down at 30mph, but I do it every time because I don't want to risk points again. You would not believe the number of times I get overtaken, or flashed at, or honked at driving down that road. I would say 30% of the time this happens, and I hate it, and I don't know what to do about it. I'm not going to risk my license because someone is following me bored, but it bugs me so much every time something like this happens and I can't get it out of my head for days. I can't just quit using this stretch of road - it accounts for a third of the roads leading out of this village!
