Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
If the car was going 90 I'd see it as a lot different than 170. 20+ is a pretty wide range, I don't think you can lump all 20+ speeders in the same group. I'm sure I've done 20+ before, but 100 over? Probably not...
Assuming this highway was clear of all other vehicles the car would only be putting itself at risk. How could this car know the highway was clear of all other vehicles? Say the 170 mph car comes up on something that it needs to stop for. Takes a bit longer to stop from 170 mph than 70 mph. Less reaction time as well. I don't think you can say the car going 170 mph was only putting itself at risk. At least, there was the potential for other things to be present whether they were or not. Obviously it didn't have the reaction time to slow to 70 when it saw the cop.
The Judge will deal the adjudication in court,,the Cop only reports the violation in Citation form. Penalties may change from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and state to state. I wrote thousands in 25 years,,,,,,never a 170,,,a few over a hundred but not many.
