What vehicle code really means

My translation of the Utah vehicle code:

Going 65 mph really means 80-85 mph.

Red lights and arrows: The first three cars after the light or arrow changes to red are permitted to proceed.

Tailgating: Perfectly acceptable, especially if the car in front of you is not going 80-85 mph.

Car-pool lanes: May be used to pass cars in the fast lane that are not going 80-85 mph.

Construction zones marked 55 mph. (See item No. 1).

Lane changes: Don't plan ahead, wait until the last possible second, don't use turn signals, cross two lanes at once, change lanes at will. Cars in the other lanes are responsible for getting out of your way.
