This blog post is a little bit of a tangent and hopefully serves as a reminder that SPEEDING IS NOT YOUR FRIEND. It will not serve you in the long run. Any time saved on the road is marginal with the traffic lights in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. Not only is it unsafe, it is unlawful to go higher than the permitted speed limit. Instead, I encourage you to set the alarm five minutes earlier or leave the house sooner. Do not speed, you may end up paying a $200 ticket just to get to work on time. Don’t do it!
