They don't want you going into first above 15mph due to durability issues. I've done it at 20mph but I don't recommend it. I'm never in 2nd gear below 10mph.
you're in lazy traffic, you shift for mileage, not power , ,,

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
