Uh-oh, I finally got one more. My previous one was three years ago and resulted in two days in jail, will see how this one pans out LOL.

It was 105 in 55. This one is much milder, just 87 in 55 - so I don't expect a jail time Twisted Evil

I don't know the circumstances of the situation, but what caused you to want to do something like that? Isn't there a voice in your head that says something like, "if something goes wrong, I am probably going too fast to prevent it, so this isn't a good idea"?

The speed was appropriate for the circumstances so no, no voices. Smile

If only we all had such rational voices in our heads! The one in mine talks way too much and gets distracted too easily.... Confused

What were the circumstances that required the breaking of the law and the risking of lives?

I don't let government determine my risk thresholds for me, I think for myself. That served me quite well to date. And you might want to tone it down a bit, you are not a prosecutor and I am not a defendant. Smile

Still nothing justifies risking other people's lives.

Then nobody should drive. Period. Nor perform any other activity where injury or death of people is possible. Only then your "nothing justifies" will be met. Smile

Welcome to the place btw, and I like your handle, it has some sentimental value to me - which saved you from a full blown attack Very Happy
