MyShirleyFor me, "please drive slowly".
GoodmanA tactful (or sarcastic) way to let him know he is driving too fast....." I am not in a hurry, You can take your time".True,but, the cab driver might say , "Well, sir you are not in a hurry, but I have to really hurry to get the next customer".
I'm unsure if you were after a proper, linguistic explanation, but hopefully that clarifies it for you.
Anonymous:Actually, saying "drive slow" is equally correct. Look up flat adverbs.
Anonymous:So does this mean that when saying ' you should drive slow here' , the correct way to say it is 'one should drive slowly here'?
