Please explain how observing a speed limit is dangerous. Is it in the same logical realm as speeding has no bearing on road accidents?
Tell the next cop who pulls you over for speeding that you're exceeding the limit because it is safer and see his/her reaction.
Because safety and efficiency are but one side of the coin, practicality the other. To play this 'pure' math game is stupid on an unforeseeable event or we'd all be driving 25km everywhere. The ones that jump to that blame card, without accounting for if science or politics SET that limit as the only factor that matters, are quite suspect. Except in cases of gross negligence, the driver isn't expected to account for phantoms in the night in regards to our speed - driving is a risk. Seems too many of you women who latch onto zomgz speed! alone forget that.
Most driving clubs agree on the 85% rule, and so do many cops. The rest are just working the highway for revenue or, like you, playing gotcha games. Which makes me think its a cultural thing - and unless your limits are on the high end, you all seem far too comfortable bowing to such a flimsy authority. I never said it was safer, I said its inevitable. To place an arbitrary limit and unduly give it priority on how you can navigate a situation, like merging/passing, is bad advice. That whole saying about being dead right.
I may get a ticket a penalty, not a crime - it doesn't matter what I say or what his reaction is. If he takes the time to pull me over, only a set of ###### gets a warning. You guys are the ones that are hollering for manslaughter over 10km/hr. Pretty big ####ing difference. If you think that makes you civilized, then have fun with that.
