Scary

Imagine how much paper the ticket printer in your motorcycle would require.

LOL, utterly rediculous. This thing would collapse the entire economy.
Imagine any large metropolitan area, when traffic ruitinely goes 10 miles above the limit. Chances are most every person goes on that highway and exceeds the limit twice a day. Lets take dallas. Pupulation 1.1million (surely its more then that) if only one person out of the household drives to work (doubt it) we can assume we have 300k drivers exceeding the speed limit twice a day. At $100 a ticket the daily revenue (or tax) would be 30mil. Thats 10.9 billion dollars a year. Or $36.5k dollars a year per family. With the average household income somewhere in the $50k range, it doesnt leave enough money to pay the federal tax, much less do something like buy food.
They are going to have to drop speeding fines to a quater before this could work...

They will record every aspect of a vehicle's performance and automatically issue a ticket every time the vehicle exceeds a speed limit.
Are you KIDDING?? Could you imagine the cost of ONE trip to work?? Ooops, didn't use your turn signal to change lanes so here's your TICKET...uh oh, didn't come to a COMPLETE stop before you turned on a red light....here's another one for speeding to pass a car....oh, and another because you're driving too close to the idiot in front of you who won't change lanes.

Rediculous. Pfft...I'd rather ride my BICYCLE to work!

At the risk of stating the obvious, people could just stick to the speed limit.

It was a tongue-in-cheek comment and certainly not meant to be taken seriously.

People not speed? Please, you've got a better chance of turning Charles Manson into a choir boy.

I thought "speed limit" was just a suggestion.

Thats why I choose to ride. Imagine if your bike put the brakes on itself. Sounds like something BMW would think of.
