It is helpful for the leader to set the speed at the speed limit until the group gets back together on the freeway so the people at the end don't have to drive ridiculously over the speed limit to catch up (and even then if the leader keeps it only a few mph over it is easier for the group to stick together). This was a problem last year. Not trying to be a granny driver, I just want to keep this thing safe.

Just my 2 cents,

+1 Good point - last year - Maryland State Police were out in force and my impression was that they appeared to target convoys for special attention.
