Not to be confused with the lightning rod, and usually involving more than one other car, a speed team is a group of drivers who speed on the left lane of the highway during long road trips. Usually hardened road warriors will know that the more cars that are speeding together, the less likely a state police car will pull them over, as long as they are going at a reasonable speed (80 on a 65 posted).

Called a 'team' because, if a slower float is in the left lane, they'll often all pass it on the right together. Speed teammates rarely even know each other, and more often than not the team will eventually break up when one leaves the highway.
I was speed teaming from Boston to Providence and I got there 30 minutes earlier than I expected.

An everyday, unknown face. A civilian is the person infront of you who is obeying the speed limit. A civilian is the fellow at the pizza joint who is looking at you and your friends like you're in the middle of a cocaine deal. A civilian is a person at a party who nobody except like 2 people know, and they may or may not be cock blocking. You can love em or hate em, but you can never get rid of civilians.
I walked into the basketball game, and all the civilians on the bleachers were looking at me because I was in my dress blue uniform.

A car with no working brake lights (including the ones in the windshield too). When this car comes to a stop, it may suprise you, especially if the driver is a hard braker.

Sadly, sometimes hard braking is intentional if the driver knows his brake lights are out. If you rear end a car, you are always at fault, no matter what.
I kept an eye on the suprise car infront of me, I think the shady foreigner inside was trying to get a cheap screwjob.

A group of cop cars or motorcycles on the side of a large roadway; usually not a highway but a mainstreet with a large gap between the nearest traffic lights; who have a radar pointing about a mile down the roadway. One of the officers will step into the middle of the road ahead and direct the speeding vehicle to the breakdown lane, or if the vehicle has passed, will chase it down in the police car.

Usually the purpose of this event is to get cheap tickets out of people doing 5 miles over the speed limit. This works well since wealthier people tend to have powerful luxury cars which can go very fast without them even realizing it. While claiming to be 'keeping the roads safe', they are merely looking for a cheap buck out of hardworking individuals. Driving in a straight line a little to fast isn't as dangerous as the assholes who switch lanes aggressively, cut faster moving traffic off, and tailgate. These pigs should be out patrolling, looking for aggressive drivers. Of course, if you're driving an expensive car, you'll get pulled over for being the victim.
The cops sat in the breakdown lane with a radar, scamming people going 5-10 MPH over in order to get a quick buck for the local police station. Meanwhile, a shitbox Honda cuts off my Lexus, and the cop 5 carlengths infront of him slams his brakes (real safe move asshole), gets behind me and pulls ME over for tailgating (as if he could have assessed from that far ahead). I appealed that scam easily and got off free when the pig didnt even show up at the appeal hearing... but next time I won't be so lucky since I'm foolish enough to drive a car worth more than that pig's annual earnings.

A Lexus model SC, usually referring to the 01 and up models, the SC430. It has a convertible top, navigation, and backseats which can fit luggage and midgets. The top is a mechanical hardcover similar to that on the new Mercedes-Benz SL-class.

Under the hood is what you'd expect from Lexus, a versatile but underpowered engine. The SC in particular features a V8 which gets about 300 HP. It'll last you much longer than a European import, and won't go as nearly as hard on gas (for a V8 that is), but unless you can do some serious tuning, don't expect to beat anything more than a BMW or Benz V6.

A vehicle that resonates annoying, repeatitive music throughout your neighborhood for about an hour. If you're unlucky enough to live near the projects, you even get the honor of listening to the same theme (or a slightly remixed version) resonating while you are trying to take a nap, or god forbid, sleeping after working a graveyard shift, about 3 different times a day.
When I was a kid, we had to walk to the ice cream palor. Now, we get to listen to a loud and annoying theme blare through our windows while we are trying to nap, watch a movie, or have sex, in the comfort of our own homes. THANK YOU MOMS OF AMERICA!

A car in the left lane which is going up to 5 MPH over the posted speed limit on the highway, and has probably started to rack up a car line. Often driven by the elderly, a person on a cell phone, or a soccer mom, floats will rarely switch to the other lane to let traffic pass.
I had a truck on my right and a float infront of me going 65. I was screwed.
