San Francisco Man Swears He’ll Never Drive More Than 60 MPH – The Pledge 60 Movement

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

This man, recently seen on Franklin Street, has sworn he will never drive his Mazda 626 LX-V6 more than 60 MPH. Why? Cause he’s a part of the Pledge 60 Movement. Check out the sign that he printed at home (or at work, let’s hope, considering the cost of replacement printer ink, “starter cartridge” don’t get me started):

“I pledge 60 MPH max to save U.S. gas $

Fair enough. Not sure how this would work on the nascent Trans-Texas Corridor where they’ll have an 85mph limit, or for that matter Montana where teen-aged girls on narrow highways will pass you in their tiny three-cylinder cars going 90+, but oh well.

The Sierra Club has/had a similar campaign – “I Can Drive 55 (or whatever the limit is).”

Pledgers should keep to the right (avoiding those carpool lane-stickered Toyota Priuseses going 80+ on the I-80) and they’ll be fine.

Pledge on.

(These kinds of pledges probably will have a higher success rate than those chastity pledges that don’t seem to work.)
