Rounding the off-ramp onto Rt 1 toward Raleigh, I could tell something wasn’t right. I’ve always wondered why car commercials advertise cars that go from zero to sixty in 1.5 seconds, and now I know. The line of traffic behind me was probably just hoping I could get from 0-30 in a day. Cars, SUVs, vans, and tractor trailers went speeding by at what seemed like the speed of light. My car was sputtering and took about two minutes to reach my cruising max of 45 mph.
