Congrats Colton - passing your test is a great feeling. From what the other guys are saying though it looks like I'm the only one at a safe distance once you go out on your own!
Do you have 'speed cameras' in the USA btw, or would the infamous US highway police object to their introduction on the grounds that it would deny them the opportunity to confront and beat up their usual annual quota of motorists?
In the UK the government has literally saturated the roads with 'speed cameras' - tens of thousands of them - and consequently they have withdrawn thousands of police from traffic patrols, presumably to transfer them to the fight against drugs and other stuff.
On many main roads there's a speed camera every mile. I've been fined twice via a speed camera, ?60 on each occasion (around $100 I guess). On both occasions I was doing 33mph in a 30mph limit area, hardly Michael Schumacher territory, and I got my licence endorsed with 3 penalty points each time. You're allowed only 12 penalty points in any 5 year period, then if you go above that you lose your licence for 12 months, so I'm not taking any chances and now I drive like a 98 year old in a golf buggy.
