Given the conditions of the road you describe, I am amazed that the speed limit is set at 50 mph. It sounds like a 35 mph road to me.

No, it's a 50mph, and since this IS the "road rage" board, allow me to say:

If you have NO IDEA WHERE THE HECK YOU'RE GOING, and you have a QUARTER MILE OF CARS backed up behind you on a road where WE CANNOT PASS YOU, pull the heck over, take your head out of your rear end, and figure out your directions BEFORE getting in the car!!!

Furthermore, if you are terrified of driving after dark, anywhere there might be a deer, generally in the United States or specifically in New Jersey, may I suggest that driving at 20 mph BELOW the speed limit will not make friends nor influence people.

It WILL PISS ME OFF.

The temple is 3.2 miles up on the left, 100 yds past the third traffic light. It's got a GIANT FREAKIN' SIGN that says "TEMPLE - 1000 feet" 1,000 feet BEFORE it and a GIANT FREAKIN' SIGN that says "TEMPLE ----->" at the turn. It's REFLECTIVE, for heaven's sake.

LOOK FOR IT, people. Is it possible that all THOUSAND of you who congregate EACH AND EVERY WEEK are a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT thousand people than last week??? Or is it JUST POSSIBLE that you've been here before and that you might be able to drive, oh, say, somewhere approaching the speed limit????

Gas is on the right, folks, please use it!!!

That is all. Thank you.
