yes, the fan is useless over 20 mph, turn the heater on full, that alone will cool pretty good,

Yep, I've been driving my Acura around like that for over a year now, you just have to keep an eye on the temp gauge and shut it off if it looks like you might be idling for a while longer than waiting for green light.
