Today, in MA I think it's $50 for the 1st 10mph, and $10 for every mph
after that. I don't think they'd let you go now.....It's important 
revenue to the state.....you'd be happy to know that it's 65mph now
so.......say 140mph.......yep.....that's $700 bucks, and they'd
probobly throw in another grand for whatever (Driving to Endanger,
Reckless Driving, etc.)........but you lucked out....you probably
can't get on a race track for a c-note......
