So it's been a very long time since driver's ed, and my Tesla should finally arrive week after next, and an interesting question popped into my head:
Is it against the law to accelerate rapidly (e.g., from a red light) up to the speed limit provided you're not racing another driver?
Here in Austin, the street that our neighborhood empties out onto has many areas that are 65mph, but even in the 65mph areas there are lots of stop lights (gotta love Texas!), so one could have LOTS of fun, but I would rather save tickets for speed traps! Does anyone happen to have a good answer for this?
