Road hazardsThe one in 10 drivers who obey the speed laws are considered road hazards. After being conscientious drivers we now will be footing the bill for new speed limit signs, higher insurance rates and a chance of losing our lives.Come to think of it, though, if we're hit by someone going 85 mph -- when the limit is 75 mph someone surely will exceed it -- there won't be anything left to take to Shock Trauma.Thus the cost of insurance may actually be reduced.Unfortunately our loved ones will be smeared all over the highway.

Radar detectors are very American devices: They are products manufactured for the purpose of breaking the law.This baffles people in some other countries. "If speeding is illegal," they ask, "why is it legal to sell devices that help people speed?"Well, because this is America, that's why. We are the land of the free, not the land of the logical.Only Virginia and the District of Columbia ban radar detectors. (New York and Illinois ban them in trucks.)And one industry group estimates that Americans own about 15 million of the devices.
