Crazy Rhode Island drivers!

I stopped for coffee this morning on the way to work, and when I walked into the coffeeshop an older couple, probably in their 60's, called me over to their table and said, "Is that really an electric car?" So I explained about hybrids to them, and they were utterly fascinated and had all sorts of questions for me. The man asked, "So does it switch to all electric when you're just cruising along at 95 miles per hour?" I had to tell him that I'd never tried cruising along at 95 miles per hour! Crazy Rhode Island drivers!

But it pleases me when people are interested in our nifty new car. :)

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA! Oh man that's a funny story.
In VA, our old people drive along at 40 mph. Always. I think they just assume that's a safe speed.

But no, RI old people - 95!! Woohoo!

What's with the roads here? Don't they know you can fill in teh potholes and make it safer for everyone?

Do you have a Mr Fusion unit for it?

IDGI.

I parsed "Mr Fusion" as some sort of soft drink.

A-ha!

No, it just has a rack of regular old Panasonics. But it makes a neat science-fiction-movie noise when you push the brakes, so it's still cool.

I think that was my grandfather :p

Or actually not, but RI drivers can be quite crazy, I speak from first hand experience on that one...I am fully able to admit to my crazy driving inclinations. ;)
