fitness821 is right, it’s not about safety. No one goes the speed limit on 16th. Even the people who are posting here deriding the OP don’t. I know because I am the one guy who goes the speed limit on 16th.
Seriously, this holier-than-thou gibber jabber is bunk. Everyone here breaks the speed limit *all the time*. I know because I’m the only guy on New York Avenue going 35 mph (well, at least for the short stretch where the camera is). I know everyone here breaks the speed limit *all the time*, because I drive in DC every day and I see all of you, doing the same thing — breaking the damn law by going 5- 15 over.
I mean, it could be that on this thread we’ve stumbled across the 5 or so people in DC who don’t speed, but that seems unlikely.
Let me ask you all this: should you all be getting tickets for going 5 mph over the limit? Instead of a $125 ticket, you’ll be fined $65 for going 5 mph over. You’d deserve it — after all, you’re breaking the law just as the OP did. You can’t complain about the amount of the ticket either, because it’s adjusted proportionally to fit the OP’s fine.
