We’ve talked about the speed limit before here on NJroute22.com.
But there are some roads around – where the speed limit suddenly changes without warning. Some places the local municipalities are courteous enough to let you know, but it’s a rarity.
And in those towns – cops are often seen waiting for unsuspecting drivers to “break the law,” even though most roads can easily and safely handle much higher “limits.”
Here’s a video rant from our friend Eric Peters – The Libertarian Car Guy that talks about the same thing.
“Safety” has become both an excuse as well as an obsession (the two things are related of course). The public has been conditioned to accept – with a servility that would embarrass Stalin’s chicken – that it must obey whenever the magic word is uttered…. and the government knows it can impose almost anything by uttering the magic word.
No matter how ridiculous or obnoxious, if it keeps us “safe” then it must be a good thing.
