And as long as you're not doing anything stupid (i.e., unsafe), this policy
holds until you're doing 100 mph. (At least that's what I've read.) Oh,
and apparently the more "safety-conscious" legislators are pushing to lower
that threshold to 80. Gee, I guess I could live with that limitation if I
had to. It's certainly better than Pennsylvania: $92.50 for 60 mph, with
an additional $10 for each 5 mph after that.
Hmmm...Are there any jobs in Montana? :)
