In that thread on the stripped down chassis, 12mph was also the speed that got the Lord Mayor busted for "driving furiously". How the heck did they know how fast they were going ?!? No radar.
They estimated the speed of the offending vehicle based on firsthand experience ...... ( ahem )
(ahem) as my dad said "the law does not require you to have a speedometer, it merely states that you are required to keep your forward progress under that of the posted limit".
California does not require a speedometer.
They say that most people are a better judge of speed than they think they are.
I have five personal cars. One has a working speedometer, although I have a GPS in my daily driver that keeps track of speed and distance traveled. I drive it about 5500 miles every 6 months. I change the AMSOIL very 10,000 miles.
