Day 238: Reduced Speed When Driving

Day 238: Reduced Speed When Driving
Slowed down by 10 miles per hour when driving. I was still driving over the speed limit and not causing traffic.

Now that I’m living in Los Angeles, I don’t have the luxury of being able to walk or take public transportation everywhere like I did in NYC. I’m still in the market for a bike.

Since I’m driving, I’m attempting to do it in the most eco-friendly manner.

According to Planet Green, “Seriously, staying at or below 55 miles per hour vastly improves your fuel efficiency, and for every 5 miles per hour above 55 that you go, you reduce your fuel efficiency by 10 percent.” Get more green commuting tips.

What was your simple green act for the day?
