Traffic Unimpeded by Gas Prices
That's a pretty big fine, if you're caught. I know.
My theory that the high cost of gas hurts only poor people is confirmed. Poor people do not drive gas guzzling SUVs and pickup trucks to their jobs as salesmen, accountants, and so forth.
I believe most people, at least most people over the age of 30, know observing the speed limit saves gas. But the cost of gas does not exceed the thrill of speed, at least, not yet.
The ability to connect individual choices with mass effects would appear to be crippled in this country. But that's the subject of a long essay.
