Tut tut.

It has come to a terrible pass that a subject of Her Majesty cannot navigate the highways and byways of the former colonies at a reasonable clip without admonishment by the forces of oppression (highway patrol!) My annual run in with the Nevada highway patrol went as it always does with a pleasant exchange of courtesies ( I expect they already know of my plan to recapture the colonies and are hedging their bets) and a cheery wave as I disappear into the distance in my criminally polluting monster SUV......I salute the gentlemen of the Nevada highway patrol.

honest this is true, but there used to be an open speed limit in arizona and nevada both, where you could travel faster in the middle of their nowhere, i guess that is all past us now, i still have an outstanding traffic speeding ticket for kingman arizona, if i ever go back i will be put in jail for sure...the ticket is 47 years old

Did they call you "boy"?

Was tobacco being chewed?

Probably the wrong state, but whatthehell.
