Washington State lawmakers are exempt from speeding tickets while on their way to the legislature.
The GigHarborTime.com questions the logic of this rule. Is “speeding” not an endangerment?
A vehicle traveling 35 mph in your neighborhood when a child runs into the street will probably hit the child.
Foggy thinking pervades the legislature. The public should be outraged. Broadcast news miserably failed to make a real world analogy. Is the public asleep?
It seems that the thought is “Oh. . .five miles over the speed limit on highway I-5 isn’t too bad“. Is that the limit of our critical thinking skills?
What about the byways and neighborhood streets? Do children not occassionally run into the street while chasing a ball, a toy or one another?
The gigharbortimes.com vehemently and loudly protests giving lawmakers rights to be exempt from traffic laws.
