Eric Peters was so intent on driving fast he drove off the road in the next to last paragraph.
I find most speed limits to be stupid, especially the ones in New Jersey that require 25 MPH in various towns. Damn it, my car coasts faster than that in neutral! However, daytime running lights is a great idea. I noticed it in Canada back in the early '90s and have been driving with lights on ever since then.
It is way easier see a car in the distance, coming down a long black ribbon of road, with its lights on; very important when contemplating passing another vehicle on a two-laner. This is especially true in the summer, when heat rising off the asphalt contributes to a mirage like view of water on the roadway.
Next thing Mr. Peters will complain about, I guess, is that NJ Transit trains now feature pulsating headlights, making them easier to see in the distance when preparing to cross the tracks.p>Sometimes safety badger types come up with a good ideas. Accept it. It’s as miraculous as hen’s teeth! br> — Wolf Terner br> Fair Lawn, New Jersey /p> p> Probably the biggest problem with automatic curtailing of speed is the horrific traffic jams that would ensue. Remember when protestors would line up three abreast in highway lanes and only go 55 mph to protest something or another? Huge backlog of vehicles ensued. I’m guessing that fact alone will prevent this from happening.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
