I Can't Drive 55

285 Traffic
The speed limit around the Atlanta perimeter is 55 MPH. But don't get caught actually DRIVING that slowly. We all know how fast people go around the loop. Keeping with the flow of traffic can lead you upwards of 75 MPH depending on the time of day.

One group of friends decided to prove that it's actually MORE DANGEROUS to drive the lawful speed limit. They make their point in a glorious act of civil OBEDIENCE... by driving around the perimeter at 55 MPH, across ALL the lanes, line abreast formation. Watch what happens.

(Excellent capture of the act, but the video itself is a bit heavy on gratuitous editing.) Thanks to Justin for pointing this out.
