Some laws can be nonsensical and obsolete. But once they are in the books, instead of revising them, we often choose to ignore them.
If you’ve ever driven on Chevy Chase Drive and have tried to actually stick to the 15-mph speed limit, you’d know exactly what I mean.
Going up to my friend’s house, I followed all the posted speed limits last week. First there was the 35-mph speed limit. Fair enough, it was manageable. Then there was the 25-mph speed limit. This was tough, but I followed. And then there was the 15-mph speed limit. My car, which by no means can be considered a modern machine, does not even have a speed marker to indicate 15 mph. There is 10 and then there is 20. I had to guess where the 15 would be. I don’t know if anyone can accurately manage this speed.
