50mph speed limit on police car let ATM raid gang flee
The Belfast Telegraph ^ | 4/29/2019 | Gillian Halliday

Police officers can only drive faster than the speed limit when they are responding to an emergency situation where they believe there is an immediate and serious risk to life.

Not only do we have to adhere to the speed limit like every other driver - unless we are responding to a situation where a person is in danger - but there is also technology in our vehicles that monitors the speed at which we are travelling.

If we go over that limit it triggers an alert and we have to justify to our bosses why we breached that limit.

The government will never actually control the speed of your car in the future because there's too much revenue to be had in fining you.

When something like nazi-pass innocently becomes required on all vehicles, the games will begin.

I believe all turn signals in America have been permanently disconnected.

I think I saw one the other day but it was probably just a reflection from the Sun.

Don’t worry, they will make you post a huge bond account and do auto-debit whenever the GOOGLE transponders detect a violation

I used to date the county sheriffs daughter in high school. He gave me rides a lot of times. 80 in a 35 was pretty typical for him.

It’s the UK. At least Northern Ireland has much better gun laws than England.

The rules here are:

1. Not using turn signals is preferred. It just confuses people half the time.

2. If you feel that you must use them, use them no more than five feet before _or after_ you start turning, and definitely _after_ you start braking for the turn.

Great Britain and Northern Ireland use MPH.

The Republic of Ireland uses KPH.

I use my turn signals for every turn and every lane change, when I was learning to drive my Father taught me to use both turn signals and hand signals.
Most folks today are just to lazy, stupid, or self absorbed to let other folks in traffic know what idiotic thing they are about to try next.

Yep, it’s a habit with me.

Part of the time, I drive a small car and try to stick to the speed limit. I pretty much get blown off the road; constantly.

Don’t tell anyone, but on the freeway I might go an extra 5 mph. Keeps some vehicles off my tail.

Let’s keep this a secret.

The collective IQ of public officials has gone down 40 points in the last two decades.
