So today I was checking my yahoo mail and on the front page an article immediately caught my eye. “Why the speeding ‘cushion’ is disappearing” – USATODAY.com. Naturally I clicked on the link and proceeded to read an article explaining that the ‘speeding cushion’ that enabled drivers a little leeway to go about 5 or 10 miles over the speed limit is rapidly disappearing due to increased police action. As a result of the recession, cities and states are trying their best to bring in any “new” revenue they can. Even to the point of apparently exaggerating details.
As for what this has to do with The Flash?
Not much really. It just reminded me of this hilarious fan film, “Speeding Ticket” by Chris .R. Notarile.
In it The Keystone Comet is “pulled over” by a police officer and humorously admonished for going 275 miles over the speed limit. Kelson did a little blurb on it about a year ago but I thought it was funny enough to warrant another mention. Especially in light of this recent story.
