Last time in Arizona Feb-2017, I asked a cop about cars overtaking me doing well over 70 mph on deserted stretches of desert roads.

To which he kindly said, $20 per mph over limit, and if a patrol don't get ya, then a drone or a helicopter surely will without you ever knowing you've been nicked and car rental company will be billed, and they will then bill you, and rightfully adding on whatever excuses n charges for extra administrations the deem fit to do so!

Think about it. Why would we do anything the same as any other country...so, no, obviously.

Did he say “get” or “git”?
