I wonder if you get a warning ticket at 8 ¾?

    Fortunately I have a spouse who will immediately let me know if I’m approaching 8 5/8 mph.

      Spot –

      When we ‘grains were learning to drive, we always knew we went over the speed limit because Mom would assume “the crash position”: one hand would brace on the dashboard/glovebox and the other would go up to the ceiling of the car. Freaked me the eff-out.

      It was effective. Charmingly, later in life, she resumed doing this anytime she was not driving, but with my father’s driving style we realized she came by it honestly.

      Rgds,

    I expect that is a rounding error and what they actually meant is 3.8 meters/sec 😉

    Apropos of nothing, eight point five (8.5) mph (miles per hour) is the speed water flows to sea (on average). Little faster here, little slower there, on average a log or a float-boat will float at 8.5 mph. Also the tides go in and out at roughly 8.5 mph. Makes for a little tougher swim than the pool.

    Man, that’s going to make it tough. My speedometer is marked off in thirds of a mile per hour. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll avoid that place.
