    Pedal to the metal no more?

    During our last visit (8 days) my DW and I both remarked that the bus drivers (both men and women) were driving at or below the posted speed limits. Is this a new policy? In the "old" days it seemed the drivers would regularly go 5-10 mph over the speed limit. Anyone else notice this recently?

    When I was just there, it felt like they were going well over the speed limit....I remember worrying about that after a few turns were taken quite fast.

    Maybe we just ran into a "slow" time, or perhaps the drivers were being monitored. You don't like the drivers who used to be race car drivers, or want to be, as you get tossed and turned in the corners? I love when they take the tunnel to the MK at 50 or so. Gets me ready for the Indy Speedway and 7 mph.

    On our last visit, I tried to keep my youngest between my husband and I. With being accident prone, I could see her falling out even if we wern't moving.
