    Yeah….let’s keep increasing the speed limits as it’s already working so well with auto accidents huh? What a bunch of BS….oh well, when you hit me? The first thing I’ll do is subpoena your cell phone records, then I’ll take your house

    That’s because no one EVER drives 35 or under on Mall drive by the bridge. If you try to you get an SUV up your tailpipe. The police just couldn’t sit there.and write tickets all day. But it means that everyone will be driving 45+, so trying to get out of the new Smiths safely should be lots of fun.
