In town, yeah we do, but we also have highways, a number of which are in states too poor or don't have enough problems to warrant speed cameras.  Probably not in California,  but I-19, I-10, and I-86 are all fine to do 90 on, if you know where the cops generally hang out.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

yeah, if the google self-driving car takes off (no flying car pun intended), recording your driving data will soon feel like a moot point.

Don't get me wrong, I'd be pissed as hell if I was driving 80 in a 60 and my car was liveblogging it so I just get a ticket in the mail later without a cop ever seeing me.

But I am eagerly anticipating the day when my car drives itself and I can just fuck off and read while I'm sitting in traffic. So go ahead and record my driving speed. As long as it doesn't have a microphone, you can bug my Victrola and VCR while you're at it too.

You don't have Speed Cameras in America, then? You lucky bastards  :argh!:
Nope, no speed cameras.

Well, I don't have speed-rated tires, so even before the Discord started running horribly, 95 is the fastest I ought to go.
Especially considering we're talking upper-90's temps in the daytime, going over 100 is just asking to have a speed-related blowout.
I did 110 once in this car,  but I'm getting more safety-conscious these days.

And I'm trying to find a used stick shift hatchback car for a price I can pay off in three years or less.  Looks like that will take a while.
I had one stick shift car in my life, and once I stopped stalling it out, it was outrageously fun to drive.

Manuals aren't that popular over here.
Probably because it's hard to clutch, shift, steer, and eat a cheeseburger all at the same time.

LOL, yeah, the american obsession with automatics had always dumbfounded me until I saw your idea of motorsport. Nascar - like motor racing but with no actual driving involved. I guess being able to control your vehicle isn't so much an issue in the states or something

I wouldn't call an automatic actually driving. The clutch is the majority of the work. Otherwise its just go-kart stop and go peddles.

I've been driving an automatic car for the last two weeks and while it certainly takes a lot less effort, I couldn't get over feeling like a Shriner.

I can't drive a stick. My brain really can't handle making three limbs do different things all at once.

It's just practice, it's also really really good way of fully appreciating cars, acceleration, breaking time and power.

Too many of us get killed in auto accidents to risk trusting more people to actually be good at driving.

But thats the mad part, you can't get a licence in Europe unless you can drive well with both. It took me three attempts to pass it. Granted It means I beat a system designed to keep terrible drivers like me off the road but I appreciate the principle.

Or maybe the causality runs the other way: Automatics lull the drivers into a dull complacency, which leads to more accidents.
