I drove past a sign the other day that said "Speed Costs", and that got me thinking.....................
Well, how much does it cost, thats what I thought
I'm talking HYPOTHETICALLY.
So, for some figures
Say "I've" done 40,000km, at an average of 80km/h, which is on average also 20km'h over the limit, thats something like 9960km extra that have been covered by this speeding. Now at the average of 60kmh, (which is the average speed at the limit), its 166hours, and if "I" was earning $20 an hour, thats $3320 that "I've" saved. Now just take away the speeding tickets, say 2, at a cost of $250.
"I'm" actaully $3070 ahead!
(pardon my bad multiplications, I havent really tried to count properly!)
Thats some strange logic I know!
I hope no-one important reads this :-) for eg, polititions, or cops!
What do you think?
lets get sideways!!!
it makes the ticket me and my mates got this morning not seem so bad! :)
142 km/h in a 110 km/h zone, as soon as we saw the cop my mate slammed the brakes, which must have knocked it down to the 142 km mark. lucky though we got a 'good cop' who put it down as 130 km so we dont have to go to court! just lucky my mate didnt open it up when i asked him to!
The copper asked how come my mate cant tell when he goes over 110 km, my mate replied, that its easier when u drive a holden cause they get speed wobbles (SA cops drive mostly holdens) the cop was as good as cops come i guess!
Bloody AU faimonts they handle high speeds so well, its easy to get carried away!!
