Letter: Dangerous driving

I used to enjoy driving. I was coming to Prescott after leaving Prescott Valley. I was in the right lane going the speed limit, 45 miles per hour. I drive a very large American car. I looked in my rear view mirror and I saw a car very close to my bumper. The left lane was wide open. I could not understand why he did not go around me. He finally passed me, probably going 60. I finally realized why there are so many cars driving so fast — people are not looking at their speedometers. They don’t realize how fast they are going.
There is another dangerous new practice: it’s the “I will not stop at the red light before making my right turn.”
Lastly, would someone please tell me why cars go speeding up to a red light only to have to stop? Be careful out there, it’s dangerous.
