Gov. Ed Rendell acknowledged that his state-police chauffeured car sometimes exceeds the speed limit, even though the administration instituted a policy three years ago ordering his drivers to abide by it except in emergencies.
“Sometimes we adhere to the speed limit, sometimes we don’t,” Mr. Rendell said yesterday. “On many of Pennsylvania’s highways, if you adhered to the speed limit, you’d be a safety hazard.”
You guys! Do you realize that we have just been given permission by the Governor of the Commonwealth to speed if we feel we’re a safety hazard?
“I’ve told my troopers that I don’t want them exceeding 80 unless they need to pass or unless there’s some real exigent circumstance,” Mr. Rendell said.
“Exigent circumstances” in this case is probably when Mr. Rendell is trying to get to a very important meeting with some hot sandwiches. You know those cheesesteaks do NOT like to be kept waiting.
So when you’re pulled over and you are asked to hand over your license, registration, and proof of insurance … YOU will hand over your license, registration, proof of insurance, AND a laminated copy of this article.
