Speed limit and Speeding Ticket

I have blogged last week that we got a speeding ticket last Saturday. That was the first speeding ticket my husband got since i got here in the US. Speed limits in the United States are set by each state or territory and it vary according to the type of road and land use. A standard sign indicating a speed limit of 80 miles per hour (mph), a night-time speed limit of 65 mph, and a truck speed limit of 55 mph; according to Wikipedia.

It sucks when you get a speeding ticket for the offense that is not really clear. The cop pulled us over because we were over speeding. Husband maintain the speed limit of 65 MPH. We did not see a sign of 55 MPH until we passed by 4 or 5 miles away from we got pulled over. I also found this info online when I search about traffic and stuff. I forgot the name of the website, but I think sounds informative for drivers.


Benefits of driving 55:
It could save a lot of fuel.
It could save a lot of lives.
It will reduce the cost of cars and could save Detroit
It could solve our infrastructure problems and save on taxes.
It would spur innovation and investment in alternative transport
It would promote innovation in urban design and densification of the existing suburbs.
