    Dr. Driving is one of the primo "what do we do about road
    rage" sites I point to, and I just noticed that they've now got
    sort of a section on hypermiling ... a collection of news
    squibs we've already pretty much seen, but that sort of makes
    their site smell vaguely of kool-aid just because they've got
    the same tired stuff hosted there. Anyone want to pursue
    it and try to encourage the posting of stronger material against
    the unsafe stuff, point to the recent clarifications/rebuttals,
    etc? The URL in question is here, just an anchor-tag inside
    their main [large!] list, and if it's been noted over here
    before then just ignore me. It didn't turn up in any searches.
    I'm probably going to point them at my recent piece and see if
    they a> answer and b> think it's worthwhile...

    I just had to point out this gem from this website where one of our favorite organizations openly advocates violating traffic laws:

    'Ed Kriston of AAA said that the automobile group encourages gentle driving to save gas but discourages aggressive types of hypermiling. "Some of the things they do are very dangerous," he said. He pointed to drivers going below the speed limit on highways...':eyebrow:

    If I remember driver's ed right everybody not under the speed limit is breaking the law:p.

    So it seems AAA doesn't see the limit as a real law then? Very unsafe of them isn't it?
