I knew you'd be from AZ before I even looked. The freeways are marked from 65 to 55! I've gotten "caught" by the cameras too :(
This is the third speeding FML in about 36 hours. What the fuck? That big thing with the numbers and the needle in front of you? It's a speedometer. Use it. Anyway, I was so excited for this FML. I thought it would be about how you accidentally sent her a nudie pic with your phone. But noooo, you have to disappoint me. >:[
organisedchaos- If you have to look at your spedometer constantly to know how fast your going, you need to go back to drivers ed... you just have to glance at it occasionally to see your speed... you should be able to tell if you're going faster than that because you surroundings go past you faster. Don't try to use "safety" as an excuse.
This isn't entirely correct, but it's definitely useful. The best way to empirically gauge how quickly you're going is to rely on the rate of acceleration and when the transmission switches gears or when you need to switch a gear manually. Basically, when you get used to going certain speeds, you intuitively stop accelerating at the speed you're supposed to be at just by listening and feeling for the switching gears. This only works if you're in a car that you're used to, of course.
Wtf? Speeding cameras? Curse the day when those get put up in my area. I didn't know they existed :/
