Been Caught Speeding

A number of years ago, when the national speed limit was repealed and states could set their own limits, I think the enthusiast drivers of the nation breathed a huge sigh of relief. “Finally,” they collectively sighed (yes, they spoke while sighing), “We can hit our cars’ limiters!”

But even with the speed limit, the good ol’ 55, people sped all the time. Why, I wouldn’t be surprised if Pingers were amongst the speeders. It’s nothing to be proud of, necessarily. Unless you’re driving a Metro doing 130. But let’s throw in the usual acknowledgement that we either learned our lessons and/or got a ticket anyway.

That said, I did 117 in a 95 Neon. The thing was shaking like you wouldn’t believe.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
