Who wouldn't get frustrated, if they got pulled over by a police officer for speeding when no one is in sight for miles? I don't know of one person. Lots of people feel that to be ridiculous and injustice. Maybe it is ridiculous but if the police didn't hold to their word, that you would be pulled over for speeding, they would lose the respect they deserve. Some laws are enforced to bring a serious attitude to the issue. For example, stepping foot on a construction site is a felony. Why such a hard judgment on such a harmless action? Because the government wants to nip crime in the bud; no one wants their expensive equipment stolen. We need to uphold a submissive attitude toward the laws and the law enforcers.
