1. Look closely at the signs on the road that show you the speed limit. The number indicated is the maximum speed you can travel. Whether you’re on foot, bike or car.
2. Try to locate your car’s speedometer. You normally find it somewhere in front of the driver’s seat, on the dashboard. It has an arrow pointing to the number that reflects the car’s speed. On newer cars, the speed is sometimes displayed digitally, with numbers.
3. This last point is also the hardest. Adjust your speed according to the number shown on the road sign. The police can not fine you if you do not drive over this number.

So, for instance, where there used to be public service announcements that said, “Every litter bit hurts,” we now get, “Litter and it will hurt” – something you could just as easily say to a beast via a whip. “Buckle up for safety!” has been replaced with “Click-it or ticket” or “Drive hammered. Get nailed.” Threats, not admonition, are the order of the day.
This does not speak well of our Ruling Class’ view of us. Nor, with an increasingly militarized police, does it speak well of our chances should the Ruling Class decide they no longer need respect our rights as human beings.
This was but one of the reason I warned about torture a decade ago. In addition to being wrong, it’s stupid. Because once Caesar gets the message he can use get away with using it on foreigners, it’s not very long till he decides to use it at home.
