Any government car located violating visitors regulations especially the ones overlapping, the drivers will be arrested and charged in accordance with the regulation,” he warned.Many people seem to take speed limits as “suggestions” and may get frustrated when the car in front of them is actually going the correct speed. When you’re running late, going 30 mph can feel like 10 mph, but you’ll be even later if you get pulled over.
