I’m sitting outside a café listening to a woman tell–for the second time–the story about how a friend of hers was ticketed for speeding in Boston.
“The speed limit is 40 and she was only doing 50-55; there’s a big difference between 40 and 55 and 40 and 70.”
I want to tell her she’s wrong–that the 15 MPH difference is huge, that it significantly reduces the time that a driver has to react. Hell, that it’s clearly speeding per se.
But I don’t.
Should I have?
